Safety Precautions

All applicable OSHA, EPA, and local regulations pertaining to electroplating in general and specifically to chromium plating should be carefully reviewed and strictly followed. Material Safety Data Sheet forms should always be available, and precautions should be carefully noted, especially with respect to the incapability of mixing certain chemicals.

Personnel should wear rubber gloves, rubber aprons, and face shields when making additions to any plating or cleaning solution. Tank operators should wear proper protective clothing and eye protection at all times.

Health and safety concerns related to the use of chromium and possible alternative plating technologies are discussed in the article "Chromium Elimination" in this Volume.
