Abstract
This testimony concerns the response of NIOSH to the advance notice of proposed rulemaking published by the EPA under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The EPA is exploring the desirability and feasibility of various approaches under TSCA to significantly reduce any unreasonable risk to human health and the environment from lead (7439921) exposure. NIOSH includes in this testimony a listing of several documents which will be of aid to the EPA in their work. Of particular value will be the NIOSH criteria document on inorganic lead published in 1978 and a recent document by OSHA and NIOSH on protecting workers exposed to lead in the construction industry, published in 1991. A current review of data on the health effects of lead to determine what new recommendations are warranted to protect workers is underway by NIOSH. NIOSH is also developing an Alert on lead poisoning among construction workers.
