  QUESTION: Information about lead lighting on lead group's website, 13 Dec 2006, New South Wales Australia

As a stained glass artist of 20 years I would be interested in how you feel about leaded windows I have my lead levels checked every year and have always been below the average levels for any ordinary person. the lead we use is not air borne and is very stable .I do hope your organisation is not guilty of scare mongering . I eagerly await your reply.
Yours sincerely
Phil
ANSWER: 18 Dec 2006

Dear Phil,
Please see the following fact sheet for lead lighters on our website:
www.lead.org.au/fs/fs18.html  and the following link from the federal government: www.environment.gov.au/atmosphere/airquality/publications/stainedglass.html
The basic message from these pages is that you must follow precautions to do leadlighting safely. This is not scare mongering. If you let us know what your blood lead level has been we can tell you how much risk you have placed your self in.
Regards,
