Assesses mortality in 1997 among former workers of a U.S. chromate production plant employed for at least a year between 1940 and 1972. Health effects of occupational exposure to hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)) compounds; Industries wherein Cr(VI) has also been recognized to pose an inhalation cancer hazard; Variety of Cr(VI) chemicals in which workers in chromate production plants have been exposed to; Cause of death for identified decedents; Mortality analysis.
