In this research paper, detail study about the blood lead level (BLL) among petrol pump workers of the Bhopal city was described. To study the blood lead level among petrol pump workers in Bhopal city, BLL was determined experimentally by taking the blood sample of 26 peoples with a varying age group from 18 years to 66 years. It was observed that BLL was on the higher side for the peoples working in the petrol pumps. The effects of different factors on the estimated BLL of individuals in the present investigation have been comprehended and are elucidated in terms of descriptive statistics such as means and standard errors including lower and upper bound 95% confidence intervals (CI). It was found that the BLL were 97.613.07 g/dl with the lower and upper bound 95% confidence intervals for means being 91.28 to 103.93, g/dl in the individuals working at petrol pumps.
