||The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has established an 8-hour time-weighted average exposure limit of 1.0µg/m3 in its proposed rule for hexavalent chromium, which is significantly lower than current levels applied in the manufacturing and construction industries. This article discusses the proposed changes and the implications of the rule for employers with respect to training, information, limitation of exposure, monitoring and medical supervision.
