The much anticipated Lead Poisoning Awareness poster produced by NSW Health is now available for distribution. [2007 update: the poster is now out of print but web-published for colour printing at page one of ]

The poster asks the question…..

"Is your child safe from lead?"

Tens of thousands of children in New South Wales [2007 update: indeed, millions of children in the world] are in danger from exposure to lead.
They could develop learning disabilities or behaviour problems.

If your child is under four, does he or she…

  • Have a brother or sister with an elevated blood lead level?

  • Live in, or frequently visit a house built before 1970, particularly one that is being renovated?

  • Live with a person who works with lead?

  • Live near an industry that uses lead products?

  • Eat soil, paint or other non-food items?

Did you answer YES? Ask your doctor to give your child a blood lead test.

Phone for more information call NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change (DECC) Environment Line 131 555

The Global Lead Advice and Support Service (GLASS) aims to distribute this poster as far and wide as possible to raise awareness about lead poisoning and the risks to children.

Please call GLASS on 02 9716 0132 for more information and go to to print copies. The second page is new and includes all the good reasons why adults should also ask their doctor for a blood lead test at every "medical" and at least at 5 yearly intervals throughout life.
