Skin hazards from nickel and chromium salts in association with cutting oil operations.
Contact Dermatitis 1975 Jun; 1(3):158-160
Under ordinary working conditions in which grinding fluids were used, the presence of nickel or chromates was not detectable by spot testing. Laboratory studies, however, indicate that nickel can leached from the machined metals. Reference is made to the fact that nickel (7440020) and chromium (7440473), in association with cutting oils, might result in serious skin hazards.
