Slide 2

New OSHA Instruction National Emphasis Program on Hexavalent Chromium Purpose: "To recognize and lessen or wipe out the wellbeing perils connected with word related introduction to hexavalent chromium and other dangerous substances in a select gathering of ventures."

Slide 3

Key Elements Information for selecting locales for examination Procedures for leading investigations with accentuation on IH assessments Measures to guarantee security and soundness of OSHA consistence staff Program assessment strategies Plans for effort to prepare OSHA consistence staff and overall population on perils tended to by this NEP and viable decrease techniques

Slide 4

General Information Hexavalent chromium intensifies all contain the chromium (+6) particle (CAS 18540-29-9) Also composed as Chromium (VI) or Cr(VI) Occupational Hazards: Increased danger of lung malignancy from inward breath exposures Irritation and refinement to lungs, throat, nose, eyes, and skin

Slide 5

What is Chromium (VI)? Dangerous type of chromium metal that is by and large man-made Exists the same number of sorts of CrVI intensifies that differ in their dissolvability and utilize Used in numerous modern applications principally for its against destructive properties

Slide 6

What is Chromium (VI)? Chromium with valence of positive six, in any shape or concoction compound in which it happens CR(VI)  In all conditions of matter, any arrangement or other blend, regardless of the possibility that typified by different substances Term likewise incorporates mechanical process that makes Cr(VI) vapor

Slide 7

How is Cr (VI) Formed? Made amid "hot" work procedures, for example, welding on stainless steel or the softening chromium metal Chromium metal is ionized into the smoke  high temperatures and concoction responses briefly oxidizes the chromium particle into a hexavalent (+6) state

Slide 8

Hexavalent chromium mixes in modern utilize Chromate shades in colors, paints, inks, and plastics Chromates added as anticorrosive operators to paints, groundworks, and other surface coatings Chromic corrosive electroplated onto metal parts to give an enlivening or defensive covering

Slide 9

Major Industries Chromium color and impetus creation Glass fabricating Plastic colorant generation Construction Traffic painting Refractory block rebuilding Paint expulsion from extensions Electroplating Welding on stainless steel or Cr(VI) painted surfaces Painting Aerospace Auto body repair Chromate color and synthetic generation

Slide 10

Other Toxic Substances Number of dangerous substances observed to be available in same mechanical applications where hexavalent chromium is or could be discovered: Copper Fume Lead Iron Oxide Manganese Nickel Silver Tin Zinc Oxide Antimony Arsenic Cadmium Cobalt Calcium Oxide

Slide 11

Program Procedures Industry Selection Inspection Scheduling Complaints and Referrals Voluntary Compliance Programs Strategic Partnerships Expanding Scope of Inspection Procedures Outreach Follow-Up and Monitoring Coordination Federal Agencies NEP Evaluation IMIS Coding Instructions

Slide 12

Industry Selection Appendix A List of SIC Codes for enterprises decided prone to have representatives presented to Cr (VI) and other poisonous substances Not an exhaustive rundown, yet proposed as essential source Industries not in Appendix A Known by Area Office, in light of neighborhood information might be included AO must archive the option and keep up such documentation for the span of NEP

Slide 13

Industry Selection Master List Generation Using D&B boss posting, the Office of Statistical Analysis (OAS) will plan ace rundown for each AO Targeting Sources AOs may consider nearby sources including neighborhood producing/administrations registries, phone postings, nearby learning, and past assessment history Establishments with less than 10 representatives should likewise be incorporated

Slide 14

Industry Selection Deletions AOs should erase from investigation target list any offices: Not liable to have Cr (VI) risks Known to be bankrupt Which have had wellbeing examinations in going before two years tending to Cr (VI) and other lethal substance perils, gave no references were issued or; that citation(s) were issued, yet follow up review reported substantial fitting and viable endeavors to decrease the genuine dangers refered to; or OSHA got and affirmed that infringement have been subsided.

Slide 15

Industry Selection Cycle Generation Sequential Number will be appointed After randomizing list, AO will make investigation cycles of five (5) or more foundations Subsequent cycles will be made until termination of NEP or until all foundations on rundown have been doled out to a cycle When AO gets to be mindful of already known foundation in one of focusing on SICs, that foundation might be added to ace assessment focusing on rundown for consideration in determination prepare for next review cycle

Slide 16

Inspection Scheduling May be booked in any request to make effective utilization of assets Cycle must be finished before another cycle is begun (aside from that foundation might be extended as per OSHA Instruction CPL 02-00-025 .) Beginning with current financial year Will proceed until further notice or until all on rundown have been examined Some foundations chose for examination under this NEP may likewise be chosen for examination under current Site-Specific Targeting (SST) Plan or different NEPs as well as LEPs

Slide 17

Inspection Scheduling Some focused on ventures for this NEP cover with different NEPs including those right now focusing on flammable tidy, lead, removals and silica When conceivable, NEP assessment ought to be directed simultaneously with SST or other modified reviews

Slide 18

Complaints and Referrals General Industry Must be taken care of as per techniques illustrated in CPL 02-00-140-Complaint Policies and Procedures Considered high-gravity, genuine and took care of by examination Construction Document status/state of work operation, taking note of any genuine hazard(s). (Documentation of occasions paving the way to perception must be kept up in record.) Note area of worksite and name/address of employer(s) performing operation Handle as per methodology in CPL 02-00-140, Complaint Policies and Procedures and OSHA FOM, CPL 02-00-148 When wellbeing CSHO experiences site where Cr(VI) exposures may exist amid course of any development investigation, proper wellbeing referrals will be made

Slide 19

Voluntary Compliance Programs Employers taking an interest might be absolved from modified assessments If foundation takes an interest in VPP or SHARP  Follow techniques sketched out in OSHA FOM (CPL 02-00-148), Chapter 2

Slide 20

Strategic Partnerships Shall be directed as per terms illustrated in organization understanding May be excluded from customized review for six (6) months, or May meet all requirements for centered (or restricted degree) examination

Slide 21

Expanding Scope of Inspection May grow the extent of investigation under this NEP if different risks or infringement conditions are watched and additionally conveyed to their consideration CSHO should take after rules in FOM while extending extent of investigation

Slide 22

Inspection Procedures 2 3 1 Search OSHA/IMIS database for business reference & casualty/mischance history preceding task of examination CSHO figures out whether some other ebb and flow NEP, for example, removals, ignitable tidy, lead or silica, and so on. Investigation planned for recognized foundation 4 SIC Code NOT recorded in Appendix A  Exit office without leading assessment At opening meeting, CSHO confirm w/business revise SIC code for foundation SIC Code NOT recorded in Appendix A, yet decided workers utilizing materials containing Cr(VI) or other harmful substance  Proceed with modified review CSHO to consider & assess representative exposures & consistence as to: Regular Operations Setup & readiness for standard operations Clearing process upsets Making Adjustments amid operations Cleaning of process zone Scheduled & unscheduled upkeep Implementation of building controls Use of PPE Medical Surveillance programs Employee preparing & instruction 5 6 CSHO will check w/manager any procedure that may deliver Cr(VI) or other poisonous substance exposures are led at office Proceed with examination with specific consideration regarding worker introduction to Cr(VI) or other lethal substances
