Lead Poisoning Prevention

Program Information


Lead Poisoning Prevention is part of our Healthy Homes Program  to provide childhood lead testing and medical follow-up services for children with lead poisoning in Columbus and Worthington. 

We also conduct environmental assessments and interventions to eliminate exposure to lead.  Education and consultation services about lead poisoning prevention also available.

Services include:

  • Lead inspections for homes with lead poisoned children;
  • Free HEPA vacuum loan for lead hazard clean-up;
  • Presentations to Columbus community organizations, neighborhood associations, day care centers, and school staff;
  • Displays of lead educational information at fairs and special events;
  • Referral services for landlords, tenants, and homeowners.

Toy Recalls

Lead is sometimes used in the making of toys, leading to children being exposed to lead which can be harmful. Recalls and more information can be found through the Consumer Products Safety Commission at: http://www.cpsc.gov/.
