Dear Mr. Wynn:
This is in response to your letter of December 6, 1984, requesting the definition of "organic lead soap," a term used in the standard for occupational exposure to lead, 29 CFR 1910.1025.
An "organic lead soap" is the lead salt of an organic acid, the latter usually being a fatty acid. Lead naphthenate would be an organic lead soap and, therefore, would be a substance regulated by 29 CFR 1910.1025.
Thank you for contacting the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. If we can assist you again in the future, we shall be glad to do so.
John B. Miles, Jr.
Directorate of Field Operations
