Health & Safety
Like most building materials, care is needed when working with lead. Health and Safety is a priority at Calder and keeping up to date records are paramount as well as providing a safe and proper working environment for staff and visitors.
Our policies have been developed after serious consultation, training and development to engage with our customers and employees in order to develop the best working systems and practices. All visitors and employees must adhere strictly to our health and safety procedures.
Precautions should be taken to prevent lead entering the bloodstream either via inhalation (breathing in lead dust) or ingestion (eating lead dust or transfer from hand to mouth). Further details on good health & safety practices when working with lead can be obtained from the Lead Sheet Association at www.leadroof.org.uk.
