About the notification

You must notify WorkSafe if your worker is involved in a lead process where the blood lead level of the employee is reasonably likely to exceed:

  • (a) 1.45 micromoles/litre (30 micrograms/decilitre)
  • (b) 0.48 micromoles/litre (10 micrograms/decilitre) for a woman of reproductive capacity.

You must notify WorkSafe within seven days of identification of the lead-risk work.
