LA7: Employee Blood-Lead Average (Calendar Year)

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration's (OSHA) standard for medical reassignment of an employee is 53 micrograms of lead per deciliter of whole blood (μg/dL).(7) Doe Run sets its maximum limit at 30 μg/dL. If any employee has a blood-lead average that exceeds 30 μg/dL, they are temporarily reassigned to other work.

(1) Beginning in 2013, all locations that measure blood-lead levels began reporting all employees versus exposed employees. Previous years were not adjusted.
(2) The Metals Division was created in 2014 and includes Resource Recycling and Herculaneum. For blood-lead data only, Glover is also included due to the nature of their work.
(3) Employees at corporate headquarters excluded.
(4) 2012 and 2013 blood-lead average values were updated after standardizing data collection across divisions.
(5) Change reflects employees who transferred from Primary Smelting to SEMO in 2013.
(6) Previous years’ values were misstated in the 2012 report and updated after an audit of records. The corrected numbers are shown here.
(7) The OSHA General Industry Lead Standard is written in units of μg of Pb/ 100 g of whole blood. Doe Run reports their blood lead values in μg/dL of whole blood, and all values in this report are presented as μg/dL. The conversion used is 1 μg/100g = 1.05 ug/dL.
