Overview

This Cadmium Awareness for General Industry Online course provides a general awareness of the risks and the regulatory requirements for protecting employees who work with substances and materials that contain cadmium, as required by OSHA.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, estimates that approximately 300,000 workers are exposed to cadmium each year In the United States. Worker exposure can occur in all industry sectors, but mostly in manufacturing, construction, and recycling.

Cadmium and its compounds are highly toxic and exposure to cadmium is known to cause cancer. Cadmium targets the body’s cardiovascular, renal, gastrointestinal, neurological, reproductive, and respiratory systems.

Cadmium is an important metal in the production of nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries and as sacrificial corrosion protection coating for iron and steel. Common industrial uses for cadmium are in batteries and coatings, as well as electroplating, solar cells, plastic stabilizers, and pigments. It is also used in nuclear reactors where it acts as a neutron absorber.
