Dr Mark Elliot of Magnox will give a presentation to the members on the hazards associated with working with lead and the control measures required under the Control of Lead at Work Regulations 2002 (CLAW). 

Key benefits of attending/who should attend?

Those attending will be made aware of the dangers from lead and how principal designers can ensure that designs protect people at work exposed to lead by controlling that exposure. Exposure to lead must be assessed by employers so that they may take adequate measures to protect employees and anyone else who may be exposed to lead at work. Control measures will be explained in detail, e.g. good washing facilities, respiratory equipment and constant medical surveillance. The Regulations prohibit the employment of young persons and women of reproductive capacity from some manufacturing, smelting and refining processes.
