Employee Blood-Lead Average

The adjusted 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”).(2) Doe Run sets its maximum limit at 30 μg/dL. If any employee has a blood-lead average that reaches 30 μg/dL, they are temporarily reassigned to other work.

Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR)

TCIR is the number of OSHA recordable and MSHA reportable incidents per 200,000 personnel hours worked. OSHA recordables are incidents that require lost time, restricted duty, prescription medication, involve broken bones or stitches, involve imbedded matter in the eye, or burns of a defined size and severity.

(1) Employees at corporate headquarters are not required to be tested.
(2) The OSHA General Industry Lead Standard is written in units of μg of Pb/100g of whole blood. Doe Run reports their blood-lead values in μg of Pb/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.
(3) Glover is included in the Metals Division for blood-lead data only due to the nature of their work.
