||Elevated blood lead levels in children of construction workers
||Aug. 1997, Vol.87, No.8, p.1352-1355. 30 ref.
||Workers with high potential household contamination should be considered as a possible pathway for lead exposure of young children. 29 construction workers were identified from a New Jersey registry including workers with blood lead levels of 25µg/dL. 26% of these workers' children had blood lead levels at or over the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention action level of 0.48µmol/L (10µg/dL), compared with 5% of neighbourhood control children.
