||Field and laboratory measurements were collected to evaluate the distribution and removal of lead from radiation shielding material and to measure airborne exposures during large shielding emplacement projects. The data indicate that lead is readily dispersed from visibly oxidized as well as freshly-cleaned shielding, but that a single coating of polyurethane can significantly reduce lead removal. While 8h time-weighted average exposures for workers constructing lead shielding structures were nearly all below the current action level of 30Á/m3, the distribution of airborne lead concentrations during this kind of work demonstrates a potential for overexposure.
