  QUESTION: Ensuring a preschool is lead-safe, 01 May 2003, New South Wales Australia

What are the effects of car exhaust fumes in lead poisoning? I am involved with a preschool that is on a main road (six lanes). Also the building had lead paint on it, recently repainted. Can we test for lead levels in the air, soil, fake turf etc? How can we be sure that the environment is safe for the kids.

ANSWER: 01 May 2003

Dear Madam,

I presume you also rang the Lead Advisory Service Australia on 1800 626 086 but just in case that was someone else from your committee, the answer is to have a lead assessor test lead in soil and dust. There are two in Sydney which we know to have experience in lead assessments in preschools - CTI on 97363911 and JBS on 83381011. I know JBS gives out a certificate of lead safety but CTI may also do this so you could give them a call.
