Controlling the Spread of Lead-Contaminated Dust

Commercial and industrial construction projects are heavily regulated by the government for good reason. They are dangerous sites for unskilled pedestrians passing by.

One of the biggest fears is lead-contaminated airborne dust. This pollutant is often unseen but can cause serious health problems including permanent damage to the lungs, skin and brain if the levels are too high.
