AVOID LEAD POISONING.
Most Paints, and Some Dryers Contain Lead. (Circular used by the Ohio State Board of Health)
Lead does not get into the body through the skin. It gets in through the nose or mouth. Hence it should be easy to avoid lead poisoning.
Nineteen out of every one hundred deaths among painters are due to CONSUMPTION. Twice as many painters die of consumption as carpenters. Working with poisons causes the difference. Poisons predispose to consumption.
Eat a good breakfast before beginning work. A FULL STOMACH lessens the danger of lead poisoning.
MILK is the best antidote for lead. Drink it at lunch or during the day.
Do not put food or tobacco into your mouth with dirty FINGERS. In other words do not feed lead to yourself.
RINSE OFF LIPS before eating or drinking. Keep mustache short so as not to touch your food or drink. A mustache is a
danger, since it collects dust.
Wash HANDS thoroughly with warm water and soap before eating whenever you
Eat your LUNCH outside of the room or place where painting or sanding is done.
Keep fingernails clean. Do not use them for TOOTHPICKS.
It is a good plan to rinse out your mouth before eating or drinking.
When sanding avoid breathing the DUST or allowing it to settle on your lips.
While SANDING do not chew tobacco or gum. The chewing movements always cause a little swallowing which YOU DO NOT NOTICE.
Do not moisten your lips with your tongue. Each time you lick in some lead particles which have settled on your lips.
When possible do sanding with a little MINERAL OIL present to absorb the dust. Brush your TEETH at least in the morning and at night, the latter before going to bed.
Avoid ALCOHOLIC DRINKS they makes you more liable to lead poisoning.
Do not use a dirty cloth or rag to wipe off your face, nose or lips.
Have a good BOWEL MOVEMENT each day-best time is just after breakfast. Make the habit regular.
Have overalls and jumpers washed at least once a week.
Painters should get a good bath at least once a week, and use plenty of SOAP.
Remember also that all DRYERS and PAINT REMOVERS are poisonous. Do not breathe their fumes or odors in a closed-up space. Have good ventilation.
TURPENTINE damages the kidneys sooner or later.
BE EXAMINED BY A DOCTOR OC SIONALLY.
