||These regulations were issued under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, 1993 (see CIS 94-1451). They apply to all workplaces where lead (Pb) is produced, processed, used, handled and stored in a form in which it can be inhaled, ingested or absorbed by any person in that workplace. Contents: definitions (the Occupational Exposure Limit (OEL) for lead is set at 0.10mg Pb/m3 for tetra-ethyl lead, and at 0.15mg Pb/m3 for all other kinds of lead); prohibition of employment in an environment where exposure to lead may occur beyond occupational exposure limits; information and training of workers; duties of persons who may be exposed; assessment of potential exposure; air monitoring; medical surveillance; respirator zones; record keeping; control of lead exposure (to occur if the level of airborne Pb is above the OEL, or if biological limits (20µg/100mL in blood for ingestible lead and 120µg/L in urine for lead alkyls) are exceeded); personal protective equipment and facilities; cleanliness of premises and plant; maintenance of control measures; prohibitions; labelling, packaging, transportation and storage; disposal of lead waste. The Lead Regulations of 22 Mar. 1991 are repealed. In annex: maximum intervals between blood and urinary Pb measurements, depending on the measured Pb levels in workers.
