The object of the MRP program is to provide temporary medical removal to workers either with substantially elevated blood lead levels or otherwise at risk of sustaining material health impairment from continued substantial exposure to lead. 

Under the standard's ultimate worker removal criteria, Requirements For Workers Exposed To Lead a worker is to be removed from any work having an eight-hour TWA exposure to lead of 30 µg/m3 when his or her blood lead level reaches 50 µg/dl and is confirmed by a second follow-up blood lead level performed within two weeks after the employer receives the results of the first blood sampling test. 

Return of the employee to his or her job status depends on a worker's blood lead level declining to 40 µg/dl. As part of the standard, Requirements For Workers Exposed To Lead the employer is required to notify in writing each employee whose blood lead level exceeds 40 µg/dl. In addition each such employee is to be informed that the standard requires medical removal with MRP benefits, discussed below, when an employee's blood lead level exceeds the above defined limit.

The return of the employee to his or her former job status, or the removal of special protections or limitations, Requirements For Workers Exposed To Lead depends upon the examining physician determining that the employee is no longer at increased risk of material impairment or that special measures are no longer needed. 

During the period of any form of special protection or removal, the employer must maintain the worker's earnings, seniority, Requirements For Workers Exposed To Lead and other employment rights and benefits (as though the worker had not been removed) for a period of up to 18 months or for as long as the job the employee was removed from lasts if less than 18 months.
