You will need to notify the agency within seven days if you are a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) at a workplace and you determine that work in the workplace is lead risk work. This applies even if the work is short term, such as abrasive blasting of lead paint from a structure.
Lead risk work means work carried out in a lead process that is likely to cause the blood lead level of a worker carrying out the work to exceed:
- for a female of reproductive capacity - 10 micrograms per decilitre (0.48 micromoles per litre)
- in other cases - 30 micrograms per decilitre (1.45 micromoles per litre).
