Description:This 1993 photograph shows a worker removing a wood baseboard covered with lead-based paint, demonstrating renovation methods typically used on residences where lead-based paint was present.
A nonprofit organization requested that the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) do a health hazard evaluation to assess lead exposures to workers involved in the renovation of older, i.e., pre-1960, homes in Cincinnati, OH where lead-based paint was found to be present. This method was found to result in low worker exposures to lead particulates. However, average lead levels found to be present in the dust that had settled in the homes undergoing renovation were high.
