      Discussion Questions

      These questions are designed to further your thinking on the topic covered in this webinar. You may print and discuss them with colleagues and other members of your organization before or after watching this webinar.

      1. How is it possible that a worker could have a high blood lead level but not be exposed to airborne lead particles?
      2. Why is the use of respiratory protection considered a “last resort” for protecting workers in environments where lead is used?
      3. Why is worker training an essential component of minimizing their exposure to lead?
      4. How do the findings of this investigation correlate with other reviews of the medical literature on occupational lead exposure?
