Identifying Lead Hazards
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "Lead-based paint and lead contaminated dust are the most hazardous sources of lead for U.S Children. Identifying lead hazards can help prevent lead poisoning.
Lead can be found in soil outdoors and can be found indoors in paint and dust.
Lead hazards may be paint chips, lead in household dust, and can be found on surfaces of windows and doors.
Since lead is completely preventable you can create an environment where children do not come in contact with lead. Identifying and treating children who have been poisoned by lead can help prevent further complications.
