About Lead Poisoning and Adults
In New Mexico, industries where lead exposure is common include public safety, radiator repair, mining and construction. However, non-occupational sources of lead exposure are also common in adults and include (but are not limited to) firearm hobbies, retained bullets, and the use of herbal remedies.
Adults should have a blood lead level test if:
- Their employment exposes them to lead
- They are self-employed or work in small businesses
- They routinely use leaded products in their hobby

New Clinicians webpage provides resource for healthcare professionals
OSHA has launched a new webpage directed specifically to clinicians. Physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners,
physician assistants, paramedics and other health care professionals often encounter work-related health and safety issues as they care for their patients.
The Clinicians’ webpage provides information, resources and links to help clinicians navigate OSHA's website and provide
care for workers. Topics on the webpage include evaluating occupational exposures, OSHA requirements for recordkeeping
and medical records, and setting up a safe outpatient office. www.osha.gov/dts/oom/clinicians/index.html
