The exposure assessment tool is a guideline, based on hexavalent chromium exposure monitoring results collected by industrial hygienists at the University of Washington Field Research & Consultation Group, to support weld shops with objective data to evaluate potential hazards. The poster should be used as a guide only and should not be used for regulatory compliance purposes. In accordance with federal and state OSHA requirements, employers must provide initial monitoring of their welders and ensure that workplace exposures are below the permissible exposure limit using engineering and work practice controls.
