Lead in Construction Regulations
 
On May 13, 2019, a Berkeley research firm issued its SRIA on revised regulations regarding lead in Construction. The SRIA outlined that approximately 10% of construction workers in the state have an exposure to lead. The information will allow CALPASC to advise its members as to what employees may be under the revised regulations. Legislation is currently pending in the California legislature.
