An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Cadmium Program


In its elemental form, cadmium is either a blue-white metal or a grayish-white powder found in lead, copper, and zinc sulfide ores, but most cadmium compounds are highly colored from brown to yellow and red. Cadmium's uses vary from an electrode component in alkaline batteries to a stabilizer in plastics. OSHA estimates that approximately 70,000 employees in the construction industry are potentially exposed to cadmium.
Cadmium may be found where work involves construction, alterations, and repairs. The activities include, but are not limited to, wrecking, demolishing, and salvaging structures where cadmium or cadmium-containing materials are present; cutting, brazing, grinding, or welding on surfaces that are painted with cadmium- containing paints; and transporting, storing, and disposing of cadmium or cadmium- containing materials on the site or location where construction activities are performed.

A training program shall be provided for all employees who are potentially exposed to cadmium. Training is provided prior to initial assignment and at least annually thereafter. Employees are required to participate, and training records will be maintained by the RSO, Replace with Safety Person’s Name, or designated representative. [1]
Training must be recorded including:
(1) Identity of employee trained,
(2) The signature of the person who conducted the training and Date
(3) Records must be kept 5 years [2]

Requirements Where Cadmium may be Present

Respiratory Protection

Where applicable, the employer must provide respirators at no cost to employees and ensure that they are used in compliance with the standard. Powered air-purifying respirators must be provided to employees who request them and where this respirator will provide adequate protection. Employers must ensure that employees use respirators in regulated areas and that respirators are properly fitted and used. Employees required to wear respirators must have limited medical exams prior to being assigned to an area where respiratory protection is required unless they have had a comparable exam within the preceding 12 months. Employees must be allowed to leave a regulated area to readjust face pieces and to change filters or to wash their faces to avoid skin irritation.
