||Safety rules on exposure to lead and lead containing substances and products whose lead content is larger than 0.5% by weight came into effect in Germany in 1996. The safety rules describe the protective measures which are necessary on workplaces where the exposure limit of 0.1mg lead/m3 air is exceeded. Mainly addressed are the supply of personal protective equipment, regular medical examinations, labelling and storage of lead containing products. Lead concentrations in excess of the limit value are to be expected in the lead industry, in the manufacture of lead containing paints, lead batteries and during the polishing and welding of lead containing alloys.
