Introduction

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.
