I'm concerned that I might be exposed to high lead levels at my job. I'm a 21-year old male working for a car dealership in Southern California (I do cashiering, filing, data entry, nothing mechanic-related). My job requires me to make several trips across a parking lot that is littered with a bunch of yellow traffic paint chips from when they repainted the crosswalks.
I've done a lot of research about lead and I know how lead poisoning occurs, as well as the fact that yellow traffic striping has some of the highest lead content in it.
My question is: is stepping around (or something on top of) these paint chips subjecting me to dangerous levels of lead over the long term (I plan to be working there for quite awhile)? If so, is there anything I can do to eliminate that risk?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
