Hexavalent Chromium
9

Gentleman, I think weve had a little too much
chromium exposure!!
10
Welding
  • Overexposures are likely when welding stainless
    steel and high chrome steel
  • Stainless steel has between 10.5 - 27 chromium
  • Nickel is also present in some types of stainless
  • Potential for overexposure when welding CARBON
    steel in an enclosed space
  • Anywhere the welding fume is more confined,
    example could be welding in a tight corner
  • Reason 10 of carbon steel has chromium in
    more than trace amounts

11
Welding
  • Stick welding High likelihood of overexposure to
    Cr VI
  • 50 of total Cr produced is Cr VI ( FR pg
    10262 col 3)
  • TIG generates lower fume amounts
  • Submerged arc generates lower fume amounts
  • MIG has lower fume amounts
  • 4 of total Cr produced from MIG is Cr VI
  • MIG and TIG
  • _at_ 800 degrees C above action level
  • _at_ 500 degrees C levels fairly low
  • Conclusion Switch to MIG from stick if you can

12
PPE Payment
  • Final published November 2007
  • Requires employers to pay for most PPE
  • Does not require payment for uniforms, items worn
    to keep clean, or other items that are not PPE
  • Contains exceptions for ordinary safety-toe wear,
    ordinary prescription safety eyewear, everyday
    clothing and ordinary weather-related gear, and
    logging boots

16
Workplace Safety Data
  • 369,000 lives saved since passage of OSHAct in
    1970
  • Costs associated with disabling injuries
  • 48.3 billion in direct costs annually
  • 145 290 billion in indirect costs annually
