The present work was aimed to find out the toxic Chromium which is widely used in the chrome plating. In this study, 220 chrome plating workers from Lahore industrial areas with age ranging from 20 to 35 were selected for the assessment of health risks. A control group of 110 individuals from the same age without chromium exposure ware also selected. A total of 220 chrome plating workers with age ranging 20-35, were included. Hexavalent chromium was significantly higher among all the workers as compared to controls. White blood cells (WBCs), red blood cells (RBCs), haemoglobin (Hb), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), and packed cell volume (PCV) were significantly (p<0.001) lower in exposed groups I and II than control.
