Lead Safety: Prevention

Lead safety is a concern among most people. Lead is present in paint, makeups, food, water and more. Through inhalation or ingestion lead can be harmful, and in some cases, deadly to our bodies. The old saying “the best offense is a good defense” really comes into play here. Lead is undetectable unless a lead test is performed. Symptoms won’t appear until damage to the body has already taken place. Stained glass craftsmen are around lead 5 to 7 days a week. Prevention is a necessity to protect their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

The infographic below is an original layout that gives a brief overview of why lead is dangerous and some quick tips to reduce any exposure to lead. It also provides some outside links where more detailed information about lead exposure and prevention can be found.
