Housekeeping.

(1) You must maintain all surfaces as free as practicable of accumulations of lead.
(2) You must perform clean-up of floors and other surfaces where lead accumulates, wherever possible, by vacuuming or other methods that minimize the likelihood of lead becoming airborne.
(3) Shoveling, dry or wet sweeping, and brushing may be used only where vacuuming or other equally effective methods have been tried and found not to be effective.
(4) Where vacuuming methods are selected, the vacuums must be equipped with HEPA filters and used and emptied in a manner which minimizes the reentry of lead into the workplace.
(5) You must not use compressed air to remove lead from any surface unless the compressed air is used in conjunction with a ventilation system designed to capture the airborne dust created by the compressed air.
