Simplify Hexavalent Chromium Health Standard Compliance with this Model Program

August 22, 2018

To comply with OSHA’s Hexavalent Chromium Standard, your company must establish a “Hexavalent Chromium Compliance Program” to protect its workers who may be overexposed to hex chrome fumes. In the mechanical construction and service industry the fumes are generated by welding and/or torch cutting on stainless steel building materials, such as pipe and ducts. MCAA’s Model Hexavalent Chromium Compliance Program can be quickly and easily tailored to create your company’s program.

If you have any questions about this or any other safety resources, or about other occupational safety and health issues, please contact Pete Chaney.
