Potential Lead Hazards in Children’s Toys Discussed in New Online Video
The IAQ Video Network releases another educational production about important environmental, health & safety (EHS) issues.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) states that with a few limited exceptions, all children's products manufactured after August 14, 2011, must not contain more than 100 parts per million (ppm) of total lead content in accessible parts. They also report that all children's products, including toys, and some furniture, must not contain a concentration of lead greater than 90 parts per million in paint or any similar surface coatings.
“Many parents may not realize that some toys may contain lead in their paint or within plastic parts,” said Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network. “Although there are regulations in the United States to protect children from lead in children’s products, some toys that have been made in other countries and then imported, as well as some old toys made before current regulations, may put children at risk. We hope this new video helps to shed some light on this issue.”
This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that work to protect the public’s health. Sponsors include: EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Clark Seif Clark, Zimmetry Environmental, Indoor Environmental Consultants, Maine Indoor Air Quality Council and the 2015 Northeast IAQ & Energy Conference to name just a few.
