There are specific federal regulations concerning worker safety around lead. These include separate clothing, shoe covers, shower facilities, lockers (to place work clothes), and warning the workers about the hazards of their work. The employer is required to have a professional plan regarding lead safety, including air quality. These regulations also can apply to the temp agency that hired the worker without informing him of the toxic nature of the work. Ashcraft & Gerel is seeking compensation for these children, who were lead poisoned when their father hugged and kissed them when he arrived home in his work clothes every day. Workers in plants and factories, who work with electronics or other items that may contain lead have rights, and are legally entitled to certain protections. Ashcraft & Gerel is fighting for these children’s compensation, where they were poisoned through their father’s workplace.
