Título Chromium compounds: production and occupational exposure
Información bibliográfica Svejsecentralen, Park Allé 345, 2600 Glostrup, København, Denmark, 1982. 80p. Illus. 88 ref.
Resumen Brief description of the production of chromium-containing chemicals and alloys, and literature survey of occupational exposure in the welding, chromate, chromium plating, ferrochromium, tanning and leather working and chromium pigment industries. For most occupations, exposure is to a mixture of Cr oxidation states and solubility fractions with a few notable exceptions: in the tanning industry, exposure is almost exclusively to soluble Cr(III), in the plating industry to soluble Cr(VI), and in the pigment industry, some wokers handling only lead chromate are exposed primarily to insoluble Cr(VI). Because of the wide variety of physical and chemical characteristics of the material of which airborne occupational exposures are composed, one can expect that the deposition, accumulation, clearance, bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of chromium differs widely from industry to industry, and great care must be taken in comparing exposures.
