The adoption of thorough decontamination procedures for ceiling dust 

    The adoption of thorough decontamination procedures at the completion of each work break, including the observance of proper personal hygiene by those engaged in the work. This can be achieved by:

  • The provision of soap and adequate washing facilities

  • The provision of laundering of work clothes separated from street clothes.

  • The proper containment and disposal of the removed dust including contaminated overalls.

  • The preparation of an industry based health risk assessment including health surveillance, biological and air monitoring.

  • Reference: “ Assessment of Lead Exposure Associated with Ceiling Dust Removal Final Nov 1999 PDF
