About This Course

Following the completion of all training content and achievement of passing scores on all exams, students will need to complete a brief evaluation and confirm his/her identity. After doing so, the student will have access to the course completion certificate.

This fully narrated course is built for success, and includes interactions, exercises, and quiz questions intended to help prepare students for the final exam. Students must answer each quiz question and complete each interaction in order to proceed.

Course Exams

This course has one final exam based upon the material in the 3 course sections. The exam consists of 10 questions selected at random from a larger pool of questions. A score of 70% or better is required to pass each exam. Students who do not pass the exam the first time may retake it as many times as necessary in order to pass.

Course Objectives

The objectives of this Lead Awareness for General Industry Online course are to inform students of the dangers of lead, the industries and locations in which lead is common, and the methods to protect themselves from exposure to lead.

The course will also introduce students to the Occupational Safety and Health Standard for General Industry, Subpart Z, Toxic and Hazardous Substances - 29 CFR 1910.1025.

This training course is also applicable to the Shipyard Industry, as the requirements for shipyard employment under 29 CFR 1915.1025 are identical to those set forth in 29 CFR 1910.1025.

This course can be taken as initial training or as an annually required refresher course.

These standards address construction work, including alteration, repair, renovation, and demolition of structures containing lead; they also address lead exposure in general industry, such as during brake and clutch repair, custodial work, and manufacture of lead-containing products.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Describe and recognize lead;
  • Describe the uses of lead;
  • Understand the definitions and the hazards associated with lead and lead exposure;
  • Explain how workers are exposed to lead;
  • Describe the health effects of lead exposure;
  • Identify and describe OSHA methods of compliance to prevent lead exposure; and
  • Explain how workers and employers can avoid lead hazards.
Additional Training

If you are exposed to lead at your workplace above the Permissible Exposure Level (PEL), additional training in the use of any Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) provided by your employer for your safety is warranted. This training should be site-specific and utilize the PPE you will use as part of your job. This training must be provided prior to, or at the time of, initial assignment and at least yearly thereafter.

This training applies to General Industry and the Shipyard Industry. It does not apply to Construction. Workers that perform lead abatement work require training per their local, state, or EPA standards. Again, this training is for "awareness" only. Visit the EPA website to contact the appropriate party to learn more about abatement training and requirements in your state.

Finally, workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on the specific hazards of their job. Training Providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, students should receive site-specific training supplied by their employer. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company-specific training should be well documented.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
