Lead poisoning can be prevented - as long as tenants and homeowners know how to reduce or eliminate exposure to lead dust and deteriorated lead paint, and what danger signs to look for.

This guide provides information for parents, home owners, realtors, child care providers, schools, renovation contractors, and lead professionals -- including resources for protecting children from lead, lead-safe work practices, essential maintenance practices for landlords, and guidelines for blood lead screening for health care providers.
