||Elevated lead contamination in homes of construction workers
||June 1997, Vol.58, No.6, p.447-454. 28 ref.
||Lead exposures were studied among 37 families of construction workers with blood lead levels at or above 25Á/dL and among 22 neighbourhood families with no known lead exposure. The hands of lead-exposed workers were 7 times more contaminated with lead compared with control workers. Levels of lead contamination in automobiles and homes were significantly higher for exposed workers compared with controls. Occupational exposure together with poor hygiene practices were the primary causes of lead contamination. Efforts should be made to ensure compliance with measures intended to prevent lead contamination beyond the workplace.
