Note1: The adult lead notification peak in 2009 was due to a cluster associated with repainting the Auckland Harbour Bridge. This cluster involved around 50 notified lead cases. Note2: The collection of non-occupational/unknown source of lead notifications data from the HSDIRT system rolled out progressively throughout 2013; therefore the 2013 data is not complete. Consequently, non-occupational/unknown lead data were reported from 2014 onwards.
