Why do I need lead training?
The purpose of this presentation is to help you understand the hazards that lead presents and how to safely work when there is potential for exposure. Training on lead exposure is vital to ensuring workers’ safety when jobs include lead. Workers should also be thoroughly trained on any duties that necessitate lead exposure. No matter what controls, procedures, and precautions are presented on a job, they will be worthless unless workers are trained on how to properly apply them.
