Materials, thermal processes and scenarios associated with potential for overexposures are described. Emphasis is placed on Manganese and Hexavalent chromium exposures as well as many other H&S hazards. Suggestions for improving the quality of monitoring data are provided as are suggestions for prioritizing exposure assessments. Ventilation techniques and respiratory protection options are also described.
