Occupational Health Watch: October 2016

Free Workplace Lead Resources for Prevention Week 

bridge-torch-cutterNational Lead Poisoning Prevention Week is October 23-29, 2016. Elevated blood lead levels in adults are mostly due to workplace exposure. This month, we highlight free lead poisoning prevention resources for a variety of audiences.

Construction: EPA Lead-Safe Certification for Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Training Courses are being offered by NATEC International, Inc. to low-income contractors and day laborers. The free, one-day trainings are either Oct. 21 or Oct. 22 in English, or on Oct. 28 or Oct. 29 in Spanish and take place in Oakland, CA. Please register by contacting [email protected] or by calling 1-800-969-3228. Class size is limited so register today!

Healthcare providers: CDPH has revised its two-hour, self-directed online continuing medical education (CME) course, "Overview of Adult Occupational Lead Poisoning in California." The intended audience is primary care physicians and other healthcare providers who may see adults exposed to lead, but the course is also useful for workplace health and safety professionals. Professionals who have taken the previous Occupational Lead Poisoning course are eligible to take this 2016 updated course for additional CE credits.

Employers and workers: CDPH's Occupational Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (OLPPP) offers a variety of free resources to help prevent occupational lead poisoning, including information on how workers and employers can prevent bringing lead home to their families, especially to young children who are at the highest risk for lead poisoning.
