An information profile on the potential occupational hazards of electroplating processes (SIC-3471) used in industrial establishments are described. Pretreatment, electroplating in a metal ion bath, and after treatment are described and a brief discussion of the most extensively used metals is included. The physical and chemical hazards of electroplating are enumerated. Estimates of the total number of people employed by the industry, the trends of process use, occupational safety and health statistics, and the biologic effects of exposure to specific chemicals are described. Four health hazard evaluations are reviewed and pertinent standards are presented.
