OSHA Produces New Educational Resources for Mercury Exposure

OSHA's two new educational resources are aimed to protect workers from mercury exposure while recycling or replacing fluorescent bulbs. A fact sheet provides detailed information such as how one becomes exposed and what PPE should be worn while handling the bulbs. The agency's quick card can be printed off and displayed to provide warnings of the hazards of mercury. It also explains how to properly clean up broken bulbs.
