I was somewhat concerned this afternoon to hear to a report on PM on the various lawsuits ongoing in response to unplanned dichromate exposure.

I'm sure our members are avoiding the 'orange stuff' anyway, but a reminder does no harm...

Dichromates are horrid, BUT they don't get out through the bottle! SO you can work carefully with due care and be OK. Repeated or long term contact will be worse.

Gloves skin protection and face and breathing protection should minimise the contact with dichromate.
