Analysis of OSHA's Proposed Revised Standard for Hexavalent Chromium (2005-330)
- Collier Shannon Scott
NSRP ASE Investment: $75K
The objective of this project was to provide the shipbuilding and repair industry a thorough understanding of the impact the proposed standard for hexavalent chromium will have upon private and public shipyards, and to provide the industry with a sound basis to submit comments during the notice and comment on rulemaking process. Compliance with the revised rule is anticipated to have a significant impact on the private and public shipbuilding and repair industry. This analysis assisted NSRP members and other shipbuilding and repair organizations with submitting comments to OSHA. The analysis of OSHA’s risk assessment provides industry with a basis to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the health effects data and, correspondingly, the level at which a permissible exposure limit (PEL) must be established to adequately protect the health of the shipyard employees exposed to hexavalent chromium.
