The Blueprint Guides are designed to aid construction managers in planning, implementing and integrating health hazard control programs for lead and silica into the day-to-day operations of infrastructure rehabilitation projects. They are designed with the following principles in mind:
Reliance on occupational health best practices
Incorporation of health hazard control into the project from beginning to end
Compatibility with current OSHA standards and owner specifications
Integration of training and experience of labor into managing controls
Each Guide contains a series of individual how-to instructions for managing major elements of lead and silica control programs, e.g. respirators, exposure assessment. Each individual guide contains step-by-step instructions and explanatory notes on planning, implementing and evaluating key program components, followed by sections with checklists, sample forms, and useful topical information.
The Guides are in PDF format. Versions of the tables, forms and worksheets are also provided in Microsoft Word and can be easily modified for site-specific conditions.
