Batik employees are exposed to lead (Pb) through the respiratory tract. Lead is derived from a mixture of coloring agents used in the batik coloring process. The coloring agent used in the batik coloring process is remazol. Smoking activity is thought to increase lead levels (Pb) in the blood. Smoking interferes with the effectiveness of some of the respiratory defense mechanisms. Cigarettes can stimulate mucus production and reduce ciliary movement. Decreased ciliary movement can stimulate the accumulation of thick mucus and trapped lead particles (Pb). The lead level (Pb) in the blood is <10 µg / dL. This study aims to analyze the levels of lead (Pb) in blood in active smokers of batik employees. The study was conducted in a Literature Study by bringing together evidence - justification. The data obtained were analyzed descriptively. The results of the Literature Study show smoking habits affect lead levels in the blood of batik employees according to Anggi et al. (2016), Rosita et al. (2019), and Tapani (2019). Anggi (2016) stated that there was a correlation between smoking habits and blood lead levels, with a significance value of p = 0.029. Rosita et al. (2019) and Tapani (2019) state that prolonged smoking causes blood lead levels to increase. The conclusion of this literature study is that smoking (active smokers) can increase blood lead (Pb) levels
