Lead Surface Contamination Testing

Since lead is still commonplace in many industrial environments where welding and mechanical work takes place, it is mandated that proper housekeeping practices are maintained, especially when lead is involved.

If work areas are not properly cleaned, lead dust may accumulate and then it is picked up on hands where it may contact the mouth and become ingested or inhaled, possibly leading to lead poisoning.

Unlike lead blood monitoring which identifies human exposure, lead surface testing simply identifies the amount of lead dust contamination on a surface area to determine the risk of exposure. For more information, please contact our hygiene team.
