Lead has played a pivotal role in industry and commerce for about as long as each has existed. The soft, malleable metal has lent itself well to the production of all manner of historic assets and has been used more recently as a key component of paints.

This handbook explains:
- The necessity of recognizing and assessing lead hazards to develop appropriate lead abatement plans
- The factors affecting the selection lead abatement methods
- The importance of safety on lead abatement jobs
