QUESTION: Danger of lead dust in lift shafts,
30 May 2003, New South Wales Australia
My 30 year old son works every day in lift shafts, of high rise buildings.
He has been unwell for some months, symptoms are head aches, digestive problems, high blood pressure, lethargic etc.
I am concerned he could be breathing in high levels of lead dust.
Would you recommend a blood test to confirm doubts?
Your web page is so informative, I am so glad this is brought to the attention of the public, thankyou very much.

Please let us know the result as you may have identified a new task with a risk of lead poisoning.
