OSHA Slow to Act

Comments Off

The new stardard for worker exposure to harmful chromium are not only inadequate, they took way too long to be inacted.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) new standard to reduce worker exposure to hexavalent chromium is seriously inadequate and will not protect the safety of hundreds of thousands of workers who are exposed to the metal in the workplace. OSHA will publish tomorrow in the Federal Register a final standard designed to reduce worker exposure to the carcinogenic metal used in chrome plating, stainless steel welding and the production of chromate pigments and dyes

Most people do not realize that the agency has had no chemical exposure standards since 1997.
