Lead in Paint Webinar
February 19, 2020, 8:00- 8:30 p.m. ET (5–5:30 p.m. PT)
Lead is poisonous and can cause permanent damage to exposed children. There’s no safe level of lead in a child’s body. When lead-based paint deteriorates, chips and dust settle onto surfaces children can easily reach, such as window sills and floors. Children may be exposed when they ingest or inhale contaminated dust (even if the particles are too small to see), but this exposure is preventable!
Join us February 19, 2020, from 8-8:30 p.m. ET (5–5:30 p.m. PT), for the first webinar in our four-part series on Preventing Lead Exposures in Home-Based Child Care. The webinar highlights the Lead-Safe Toolkit for Home-Based Child Care—a FREE resource offering easy-to-follow steps for finding out if lead hazards exist in your home and what you can do to reduce these hazards.
In this first webinar, Amanda Reddy, Executive Director of the National Center for Healthy Housing, discusses the dangers of lead in paint and shows you steps to take to reduce lead paint exposures.
Please register on February 19 at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) to learn how you can protect children from brain-damaging lead.
The Lead-Safe Toolkit for Home-Based Child Care was developed with input from child care professionals and lead prevention experts under the guidance of the Children’s Environmental Health Network, the National Center for Healthy Housing, and the National Association of Family Child Care.
