HSE INDG 346 “Chromium and You”

This HSE guide on working with Chromium was last updated in 2013.

The guide discusses working with chromium and its inorganic compounds and how exposure may affect your health. This leaflet tells you about the possible health effects, the preventative measures your employer needs to apply, and the precautions you should take to protect your health.

Not all forms of chromium present the same dangers. This leaflet focuses on chromium (VI) compounds (Hexavalent Chromium).
