    Children of Construction Workers at Increased Risk for Lead Poisoning - NIOSH 1997 study
    To prevent contaminating the home with lead from the workplace, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires for all workers exposed to lead above the permissible exposure limit (PEL) that employers: 1) provide clean protective work clothing; 2) ensure that workers change out of work clothing before leaving the work site; and 3) ensure that workers shower before leaving work. When an employer does not provide clean work clothing (for example, at a work site with exposures below the PEL), NIOSH recommends that contaminated work clothing be handled, stored, and washed separately from all other clothing.
