OSHA Lead Awareness Training
In accordance with Federal OSHA Regulations 29 CFR 1926.62
"Good job on explaining the dangers of lead and its impact on human health. Good lesson plans and use of multimedia."
Charlie Evens, Civil Engineer
"I am going to be working on an old building and we expect to be exposed to lead. That’s why I had to take a course to comply with OSHA requirements. I’m glad I chose your company as the course covered many areas and helped me to understand the best ways to work with lead and the necessary protections to take."
Dan DaCosta, Construction Worker
"A fellow colleague recommended HAZWOPER-OSHA to me. I am really glad I took this course with you’ll as the lessons gave good information and your platform is easy to navigate, especially as I am not very good with technology!"
Dennis Marshall, Construction Site Supervisor
"The pictures used in course helped me to understand the content easily and the course spelled out the importance of taking safety precautions to protect myself and my colleagues."
Annie Samuels, On-Site Representative
OSHA Lead Awareness Training is designed to provide general information and guidelines related to lead exposure to workers, foremen, and supervisors engaged in work operations on a construction worksite in compliance with OSHA’s Lead Standard for the Construction Industry, 29 CFR 1926.62.
Lead exposure is a serious threat to workers who work around lead or lead-containing materials across various industries including the construction industry. Over time, lead exposure can lead to a multitude of serious health conditions for both workers and their families.
OSHA regulations require annual training for all workers exposed to lead at or above the action level in their workplaces. This course is designed to comply with OSHA’s initial and annual training requirements.

- Summarize OSHA regulations pertaining to lead exposure in the construction industry;
- Explain the physical and chemical properties of lead;
- Explain the various routes of exposure to lead and the adverse health effects associated with this exposure;
- Outline the permissible exposure limit (PEL) and action level (AL) for lead exposure as specified by OSHA regulations;
- Explain the elements of a comprehensive medical surveillance program;
- Define chelating agents and the conditions for their use;
- Summarize the purpose of medical removal protections and the benefits an employee is entitled to in case of removal; and

OSHA Lead Awareness Training Syllabus
This OSHA Lead Awareness Training course consists of 6 lessons. Students are required to take each lesson in sequential order as listed below.
OSHA Lead Awareness Training: Introduction
Lesson 1: What is Lead?
This lesson will introduce the physical and chemical properties of lead and its use in ancient times and the industrial era. The lesson will describe lead and the various types of lead, provide a historical evolution of lead as used in ancient times and the industrial era, explain the physical and chemical properties of lead, and summarize OSHA regulations relating to lead exposure in various industries.
Lesson 2: Lead – A Health Hazard
This lesson provides an overview of the adverse health effects associated with lead exposure and resulting in adverse health effects. The lesson will focus on explaining the various routes of exposure to lead, discussing factors affecting lead absorption in the body, describing the biological fate of lead in the human body, and making clear the harmful effects of lead exposure on various organs and systems of the human body.
Lesson 3: Lead Exposure in the Construction Industry
This lesson will explain what lead is, why it is such a serious threat, and the steps employers must take to keep employees safe. The lesson will provide in-depth details about the uses of lead and the activities that pose a significant risk of lead exposure for workers in the construction industry. The lesson will also explain and define the permissible exposure limits (PEL) and action level (AL) as specified in OSHA’s Lead Standard for the construction industry; and explain how blood lead level is an important indicator of the risk of developing lead-related diseases.
Lesson 4: Exposure Assessment
This lesson will cover the purpose and scope of the initial exposure assessment of lead when work begins on a new project or worksite, and the frequency of ongoing testing when further monitoring and control measures are needed. The lesson will discuss the procedure for conducting initial exposure assessments, explain the provision of providing interim protections to employees during the initial exposure assessment, explain how and when employees must be notified of the monitoring results, and discuss the recordkeeping requirements for employee exposure assessments.
Lesson 5: Medical Surveillance
This lesson will summarize medical surveillance programs, medical removal provisions, and medical removal protection benefits at a worksite where workers are exposed to lead. The lesson will explain the elements of a comprehensive medical surveillance program, summarize the conditions under which employers must make a medical examination or consultation immediately available to employees, define chelating agents and their use in terms of lead exposure, and discuss the purpose of medical removal protections and the benefits to which an employee is entitled in case of removal.
Lesson 6: Exposure Controls
This lesson will discuss the engineering controls, administrative controls, housekeeping practices, and protective clothing and equipment (PPE) that can help keep workers safe on the job to minimize the impact of lead exposure on employee health.

A Final Note
It is important to remember that attending a training course on its own will not make a worker competent. Competence is developed over time by implementing the knowledge acquired through a training course to on-the-job work processes. Therefore, in addition to this online course, it is important that you receive additional on-site training from your employer.
