This report is Section IV of four 'stand alone' documents that can be used by road controlling authorities, maintenance engineers, and industrial painting contractors when carrying out removal or maintenance of lead-based paints on steel roading structures. It will enable them to comply with their statutory obligations, and minimise effect on the environment and risks to workers and public health.

Section IV contains a generic standard specification for the cleaning and coating of steelwork. It sets out information to be supplied by the owner, and requirements to be met by the contractor; and includes standards for coating materials, surface preparation and contamination containment.
