Welcome to the Canada Construction Lead Safety Training Course. Lead is a natural metal, and one that is easily re-melted and refined, making it usable in the manufacture of a variety of consumer and industrial products. However, lead exposure can result in both short-term and long-term health problems. The danger of lead exposure can be high in performing construction related tasks, but harmful exposure is preventable. Awareness of both the sources of lead exposure and the safety measures used to reduce the risk of exposure is extremely important. This awareness can protect workers and their families from suffering adverse health effects.
