    Article - En anglais


    Although the construction industry until recently was exempt from the Occupational Health and Safety Administration General Industry Lead Standard, including its medical monitoring provisions, periodic blood lead tests have been required for residential « deleaders » and structural painters in Massachussets.

    Sixty-three percent of the 381 registrants in the Massachussets Occupational Lead Registry with blood lead levels of 1.93 mumol/L or higher are construction workers.
