I think all novice bloggers realize immediately that maintaining a blog is hard work.  So, it’s easy to understand how some information just slips through the cracks.  While discussing future posts we realized you, our audience, have no idea who we are.  It’s a good question.  Why do we think we are qualified to give you any advice?

Sasha’s International began nearly twenty years ago.  We are an export company and we specialize in battery spare parts.  As mentioned in one of our first posts, battery plant workers are exposed to lead on a daily basis by breathing in lead dust fumes, by eating, drinking or smoking in work areas or by handling contaminated objects.  We’ve mentioned numerous times that lead dust can be absorbed into the body through the skin.

Because lead builds up in the body over time, workers in battery plants who are exposed to lead, must have their blood tested regularly.  A normal or average level of lead can vary in an adult from 5 to 20 micrograms of lead per deciliter of blood (5-20 mcg/dl).  A high blood lead level (usually 40 mcg/dl) will lead to medical leave until blood levels return to normal.  It is in the battery manufacturer’s best interest to ensure that all workers are healthy and able to perform all necessary tasks.  So among other safety precautions, such as filtering the air, wearing safety masks and gloves, workers must wash with Clean-All Soap, before every break, and shower after every shift.

Suffice to say, we know there is a need to keep you safe because it’s our business to know.
