||Characterization of lead in US workplaces using data from OSHA's integrated management information system
||2011, Vol.54, p.356-365. Illus. 30 ref.
||Lead hazards continue to be encountered in the workplace. OSHA's Integrated Management Information System (IMIS) is the largest available database containing sampling results at United States workplaces. Personal airborne lead sampling results in IMIS were extracted for the years 1979 to 2008. Descriptive analyses, geographical mapping and regression modeling of results were performed. Seventy-nine percent of lead samples were in the manufacturing sector. Lead sample results were highest in the construction sector (median=0.03mg/m3). Lead hazards have been most prevalent in the north and northeastern regions of the United States. Other findings are discussed.
