Activities involving lead must comply with all local, state, and federal regulations, as applicable.

More information is available here.

Departments where faculty, staff, or students may be exposed to lead fumes form forging, soldering, welding, or heating lead-containing materials, or who otherwise handle lead-containing materials, are to notify EHS so that the potential lead exposures can be evaluated. If concerns are identified, EHS will provide guidance on appropriate control measures, including medical surveillance, if appropriate.
