Lead-Safe Toolkit for Home Based Child Care Series- Lead in Soil

Lead in Soil Webinar

July 2020

Lead is poisonous and can cause permanent damage to exposed children. There’s no safe level of lead in a child’s body. Lead can be found in soil due to the historic use of lead-based paint on homes and leaded gasoline in cars and continued use in aircraft. Children may be exposed to lead-contaminated soil by playing in bare dirt, but this exposure is preventable! In this webinar, you’ll learn the steps you can take to protect the children entrusted to your care.
