Storage

  • All rolls of Lead should be stored in a clean dry area and ideally off the floor on a wooden base
  • Unsealed concrete or rough floors will leach moisture and alkalis into the Lead rolls causing staining
  • Any contact with moisture will ingress into the layers of a Lead roll by capillary action and create red oxide staining (similar to rust) in a matter of hours (this can sometimes be removed by using a nylon scourer and ordinary vinegar)
  • Where possible flashing rolls of 450mm width or less should be stored on end to minimise the risk of damage, wider rolls should be laid on pallets
  • Always remember that the surface of Lead can be scored or damaged if it comes into contact with rough surfaces

Health and Safety

Lead in its metallic state does not present a health risk provided that a few simple precautions are followed:

  • Always wear work-gloves when handling Lead
  • Always wash your hands and forearms as soon as you finish and before you do anything else
  • Do not eat, drink or smoke after handling Lead, prior to washing your hands (this applies even if gloves have been worn)
  • When sweeping a Lead storage area, damp down any dust and wear a protective mask
  • When welding Lead follow HSE guidelines and wear eye protection

Handling

  • However obvious it may sound, people forget that a piece of Lead is always heavier than it looks.
  • Always follow correct HSE lifting guidelines
  • Never attempt to lift a roll of Lead on your own unless you are confident of your ability to handle it without undue effort
  • If in doubt, either insert a strong steel bar through the roll and lift with the help of another person or employ approved mechanical lifting equipment
  • Always wear a pair of work-gloves to protect from both Lead dust (see Health and Safety notes above) and sharp edges
