QUESTION: What is my lead exposure when I cut glass tile and smalti, as a mosaic artist? 12 Nov 2007 Florida, USA

 I am a mosaic artist and was wondering.... What is my lead exposure when I cut glass tile and smalti? thank you, Cynthia‍

ANSWER: 05 Jun 2009

Dear Cynthia,

I hope by now that you were able to work out the way to find the precise answer to your question. It is by asking your doctor to test the lead in your blood. There is no better piece of data to let you know precisely how much care you need to take in your work to reduce your lead exposure. I know it's not quite the same but the closest factsheet we have that might help you to make your mosaic artistry more lead-safe is "Beware the lead in leadlighting"

There is also an Australian federal government factsheet called "Lead in Recreational Activities" I will also send you our full Info Pack for lead workers which will help you to figure out whether you need to make your work practices more lead-safe, on the basis of your blood lead result.

Yours Sincerely

Elizabeth O'Brien,
