Welcome to the State of California 

Lead’s Revenge! ¡La Venganza del Plomo!

A training video about lead paint and ladder safety

Un video para capacitación sobre la seguridad cuando se trabaja con las escaleras o pintura con plomo

Two common hazards faced by painters and other construction workers are lead poisoning and falls from ladders.  The Occupational Lead Poisoning Prevention Program’s innovative bilingual DVD will assist painting and construction companies to address these hazards by conducting tailgate trainings and running safer jobsites. 

“Not your typical classroom lecture,” the video combines factual information with humor to convey educational content in a story format.  It shows actions employers and workers should take to prevent ladder falls and lead poisoning on the job, as well as steps they can take to protect families from lead that can be brought home from the worksite.  Key educational and motivational messages are conveyed in both English and Spanish without the use of subtitles.  (English/Spanish, 17 minutes)
