The article reports that as the U.S. Labor Department opened hearings February 1 in Washington D.C., on its proposed new rule on worker exposure to hexavalent chromium, a toxic metal, representatives of labor unions expressed unhappiness that the draft rule fails to include Portland cement work. Union members of the Advisory Committee for Construction Safety and Health last year proposed having Portland cement included in the standard. The Portland Cement Association believes Occupational Safety and Health Administration took the right course on the construction standard.
