The pamphlet and related materials are part of an EPA outreach program designed to raise awareness of the health hazards of lead poisoning. The pamphlet makes recommendations to both contractors and do-it-yourselfers regarding activities that could cause exposure to lead.
The NPCA said paint manufacturers can assist in disseminating information about the EPA program by placing information on company websites that provide direct links to the EPA website at www.epa.gov/opptintr/lead/leadrenf.htm. Companies also can distribute the EPA pamphlet and related information at retail stores and dealers. Copies of the pamphlet and other information can be obtained from the National Lead Information Center at 800/424.5323, or by downloading the documents from the EPA website listed above.
