The Stained Glass Association of America, in cooperation with the Lead Industries Association (LIA) has produced a video for stained glass studios and hobbyists. The 12-minute program, available on DVD, focuses on how to control exposure to lead and explains preventative measures currently required by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration).
The video describes workplace protection as a three-way partnership:
- The government agency which sets the limits on permissible exposure levels.
- The employer who is responsible for informing and training the employee.
- And the worker, who must follow the company’s procedures and practice good personal hygiene.
Hobbyists working on their own will also benefit from the many procedures and safety tips demonstrated on the video.
