SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Inorganic lead is a naturally occurring soft, gray metal used in various forms since ancient times. Occupational exposures occur in a wide range of industries including, but not limited to, the following: Construction, smelting and refining, firing ranges, automobile repair, electronic waste recycling, metal recycling, and many others. Significant occupational exposures to inorganic lead are through inhalation, ingestion, and through the skin, principally through damaged skin. The current NIOSH REL for inorganic lead is 50 micrograms per cubic meter (mg/m3) as a time-weighted average (TWA) concentration for an 8-hr work shift during a 40-hr workweek [NIOSH 2007]. NIOSH is requesting information on the following: (1) De-identified (without personally identifiable information such as name, social security number, date of birth, etc.) inorganic lead breathing zone airborne exposure measurements with corresponding blood lead level concentrations; (2) information on possible health effects observed in workers exposed to inorganic lead, including exposure data (airborne, blood, and/or surface) and the method(s) used for sampling and analyzing exposures; (3) description of work tasks and scenarios with a sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES ADDRESSES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:37 Aug 20, 2018 Jkt 244001 potential for exposure to inorganic lead; (4) information on control measures (e.g., engineering controls, work practices, personal protective equipment, exposure data before and after implementation of control measures) that are being used in workplaces with potential exposure to inorganic lead; (5) surveillance findings including protocol, methods, and results; and (6) other relevant information related to occupational exposure to inorganic lead. Background: The current Recommended Exposure Limit (REL) for inorganic lead is 50 mg/m3 as a Timeweighted Average (TWA) concentration for an 8-hour work shift during a 40hour workweek [NIOSH 2007]. As part of an effort to identify RELs that may not be adequate to protect workers from adverse health effects due to exposure, NIOSH is reexamining the REL for inorganic lead. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) lead standard, 29 CFR 1910.1025, established a permissible exposure limit (PEL) for inorganic lead at 50 mg/m3 for an 8-hour period with an action level of 30 mg/m3 for an 8-hour period [CFR 2018]. The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH®) threshold limit value (TLV®)-TWA for lead and inorganic compounds is 50 mg/ m3 with an A3 carcinogenicity classification (confirmed animal carcinogen with unknown relevance to humans) [ACGIH 2018]. Information Needs: NIOSH seeks to obtain materials, including published and unpublished reports and research findings, to evaluate the possible health risks of occupational exposure to inorganic lead. Examples of requested information include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) Identification of industries or occupations in which exposures to inorganic lead may occur. (2) Trends in the production and use of inorganic lead. (3) Description of work tasks and scenarios with a potential for exposure to inorganic lead. (4) Workplace exposure measurement data of inorganic lead (airborne and surface) in various types of industries and jobs with an emphasis on deidentified, breathing zone airborne inorganic lead exposures with corresponding blood lead levels. Deidentified data do not contain personally identifiable information that can be used to distinguish or trace an individual’s identity. (5) Case reports or other health information demonstrating potential health effects in workers exposed to inorganic lead. PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (6) Information on control measures (e.g., engineering controls, work practices, PPE) being taken to minimize worker exposure to inorganic lead. (7) Educational materials for worker safety and training on the safe handling of inorganic lead. (8) Data pertaining to the feasibility of establishing a more protective REL for inorganic lead.
