reverberation time was reduced by 20% to 50%. After the treatment the perceived noise
disturbance level decreased slightly but not significantly and the proportion of the staff
that often or very often planned the daily activities to reduce the noise level had
decreased from about 39% to 25%. Similarly, the percentage that often or very often had
a need for silence after work had decreased from 42% to 37%.

Abstract
Exposure to lead has been shown to be harmful to adults; it is a teratogen, it can
damage the peripheral nervous system, and it adversely affects the reproductive system.
Professional lead-based paint remediation workers are at risk of exposure to lead dust.
The authors’ study was conducted to determine if these remediation workers transfer lead
from their work site to their vehicles and then potentially expose their families. It was
hypothesized that remediation workers transported the lead from the remediation work
site to the floorboards of their vehicles due to not following required protective
