Guide to hazardous paint management Part 1: Lead and other hazardous metallic pigments in industrial applications
|Publication Date:||19 September 2017|
This Standard provides guidance on the management of lead-based paints and other hazardous paints (e.g. paints containing zinc chromate and other chromate-based material, arsenic compounds or cadmium compounds). Risk management is also covered as a tool for developing controls for the identified hazards.
This Standard applies to the management of hazardous paints on industrial structures. It includes methods for determining whether hazardous metallic pigments are present on a structure and the selection of a maintenance strategy. Guidance is given on implementing emission controls during paint removal to ensure that potential health risks to workers and the public are reduced to an acceptable level, environmental pollution regulations are observed and a method of handling hazardous waste is selected which meets governing legislation.
For legal obligations associated with managing lead-based and other hazardous paints, refer to work health and safety (WHS) regulatory requirements.
