New tool aimed at workers exposed to cadmium

OSHA has released an interactive online tool to help employers comply with the agency’s cadmium standard. The “Cadmium Biological Monitoring Advisor” analyzes biological monitoring results provided by the user. The findings, along with a series of answers to questions, are used to determine monitoring and medical surveillance requirements.

Cadmium is a soft, silver-white metal used in many industries, including metal machining, plastics, ceramics, painting, and welding. Workers may also be exposed from the smelting and refining of metals or from air in industrial plants that manufacture batteries, coatings, or plastics. 

The government estimates that some 300,000 workers in this country face exposure each year. Results range from weakness, fever, and headache to kidney damage and cancer.

Find the tool on the OSHA website at www.OSHA.gov.
