New hazardous substances and lead report

Posted on 24/02/2015 by

We have released a National Hazardous Substances and Lead Notification report for 2013. Read the report here.

Key findings were that lead notifications were mostly males, more non-occupational lead exposures than occupational, and lead based paint and indoor rifle ranges were the most common source of lead exposure for adults. Household products were the most common causes of hazardous substances poisoning among children less than five years old.
