Deleading and lead safety

Hotline: (617) 626-6960 Email: DLSfeedback@state.ma.us

Lead poisoning is a major, preventable, environmental health problem for both children and adults.

The Department of Labor Standard's (DLS) lead program aims to reduce lead exposure for the Commonwealth's workers and the general public. DLS creates and enforces standards for deleading, renovation, repair, and painting for older homes and child-occupied facilities that may contain lead paint.

DLS also oversees the Occupational Blood Lead Registry (OBLR), which tracks elevated blood lead levels among adults and provides educational counseling and guidance to workers. Through medical consultation, OBLR offers advice to physicians on the medical management of lead poisoning.
