The California Department of Health Services began an occupational lead poisoning prevention project in cooperation with 275 radiator service companies.
The agency developed and marketed resources to facilitate companies' own efforts, tracked the progress of each company, and urged the companies to conduct blood lead testing.
Testing by participating employers increased from 9% to 95%, and 10 times as many companies with likely overexposures were identified as had been reported to the state's lead registry in the previous year.
