The Ohio Department of Health Lead Poisoning Prevention Program ensures the public receives safe and proper lead abatement, detection and analytical services by requiring those services be conducted according to federal and state regulations, and by trained and licensed personnel. The program licenses lead risk assessors, lead abatement contractors, lead abatement workers, lead inspectors and lead project designers. In addition, the Lead Program approves initial and refresher lead training courses. The program approves abatement systems and products (encapsulants), clinical laboratories that analyze blood lead levels in humans and environmental lead analytical laboratories that analyze the amount of lead in the environment.
The Lead Program provides high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuums for loan to the general public through health and housing agencies. The program dispenses information and educational pamphlets about lead poisoning and its prevention upon request as well as conducts training sessions for lead professionals, training providers, landlords, tenants, real estate agents, remodelers, licensed personnel, medical personnel and the general public.
