Lead is a highly toxic metal that has been commonly used in many household, industrial and automobile products. Lead poisoning is a serious but preventable health problem.
The Healthy Homes Lead Poisoning Prevention Program works with health care providers to ensure that all 1- and 2-year-old children are tested for lead.
The risk of lead poisoning can be reduced when schools are maintained in a way that lowers or eliminates sources of lead—such as lead-contaminated soil, lead dust, and chipping or peeling lead-based paint.
