There is no safe level of lead.

Emissions from leaded aviation fuel, avgas, which is used in piston engine small planes, has long been a health concern, especially for young children and women of reproductive age.

Nevertheless, unleaded aviation fuel has sat on the back burner at the FAA which has yet to approve an unleaded aviation fuel, although an unleaded fuel has been sold at airports in the Northeast for several years. Not all piston driven planes can use that fuel  but, with a retrofitted engine most can use it. The retrofit is inexpensive. What is needed is the will of owners and pilots to take action and push the FAA to action.  NOW.
