Latest Video on Lead Paint from our colleagues at the National Painting and Decorating Institute (NPDI)

Nigel Gorman at Aussie Painters Network has drawn the attention of painters Australia-wide to an important video that’s been put together by the National Painting and Decorating Institute, providing a comprehensive overview of the ongoing problem of Lead Poisoning, predominantly from paint in older homes. It features experts in the field – Elizabeth O’Brien and Professor Mark Taylor of The LEAD Group - discussing this entirely preventable, but persisting issue which often devastates the smallest, most vulnerable of our communities; our children.

Aussie Painters Network strives to create awareness of this issue in the community, and would now like to put together a database of painters who specialise in undertaking professional, Lead Abatement procedures. Nigel Gorman hopes that direct access to those providing this service for the consumer will assist in preventing further contamination of our families and our environment. [There are lists of lead trained painters – one of which has been updated recently (the ACT list only) - at http://www.lead.org.au/referral_lists.html ]

There are three ways to see the video:
