For some hazardous substances health surveillance is an important required measure to ensure control measures are adequate, early problems are identified and workers' health is protected. 


Lead is a well known poison. Health surveillance organised by the employer is required by law where there is a risk of significant lead exposure. As a general rule, lead health surveillance is advisable:

  • If workers are required to wear respiratory personal protective equipment (PPE) to control lead exposure

  • If workers are at risk of returning blood lead levels of 5 ug/dL or higher due to an occupational source
