Título Lead use in California industry - Its prevalence and health implications
Información bibliográfica Oct. 1991, Vol.52, No.10, p.409-416. 30 ref.
Resumen A 1986 California survey estimated that 230,000 workers employed in lead-using activities, although 68% of this number worked in activities of relatively low hazard. Over 1,800 were reported to work in battery manufacture, a relatively high-hazard activity, but with consistent monitoring and protection. In contrast, over 4,300 were involved in radiator repair activities, a high-hazard activity with inconsistent monitoring and protection. Over 8% of construction workers were reported to work in lead-using processes. This sector is exempt from US federal and state occupational lead standards, yet some of the most hazardous activities (welding, grinding, cutting, etc.) occurred here. Comparison of projections from the National Occupational Hazard Survey of potential lead exposure in California with these survey results suggests consistent and reliable assessment of the major sources of potential occupational lead exposure.
