Hexavalent Chromium: Lessons Learned in Risk Assessment and Employee Surveillance Program Development

In 2010, OSHA confirmed the new Hexavalent Chromium (Cr (VI)) standard requiring employers to notify their employees of all exposure determinations, including those which do not exceed the permissible exposure limit. These new limits created a new population of potentially affected employees. This session will demonstrate lessons learned from conducting a Cr (VI) risk assessment and creating Cr (VI) employee medical surveillance program. This presentation will provide you with tools to help you create an exposure surveillance program within an organization.
