Lead Safe Work Practices

Lead is highly toxic and exposure to it can be dangerous, especially for children under the age of 6. Exposure to lead-contaminated dust, not lead-based paint, is the most common way to get lead poisoning. But, Lead poisoning can be prevented. The Lead Safety Program was created to foster lead-safe work practices and promote community awareness throughout Dutchess County

 

If you're working on homes, schools or daycare centers built pre-1978, you now must be EPA Lead-Safe Certified.
