Description

Men and women of the military have an increased lead exposure hazard by the nature of their job. Specifically, the Special Forces community of the Army has a significant exposure due to the weapons required for their mission. Because of this high exposure, Unites States Army Special Operations Command has recently introduced a new regulation pertaining specifically to Green Berets in an effort to decrease blood lead levels in this targeted population. While this session is a synopsis of the program initiation, education, and challenges that face this unique problem and population, it has application in any setting or with any group of workers with a lead exposure.

  • Identify lead exposure hazards and why it is still a hazard in today‚Äôs society.
  • Explain the differences between OHSA regulations vs. United States Army Special Operations Command Regulations (USASOC), how they happened and who is responsible.
  • Describe the challenges with lead monitoring in the case study and any population.
