    Surface engineering has become a well-established technology and is an extremely versatile means of improving component performance in different science and engineering applications. As with any manufacturing technology, surface engineering processes present environmental, health, and safety hazards as well. Owing to the increasing stringent legislations and national and international standards on health and safety, a number of emerging surface engineering processes (e.g., physical vapor deposition) have been developed recently. Although health and safety concerns involved in traditional surface engineering processes (e.g., electroplating) have been minimized to a great extent in the emerging processes; however, new hazards and risks have also been introduced during this development. The motivation for writing this chapter is to give a brief overview on the different aspects of health and safety issues, which arise from emerging surface engineering processes. In addition, the necessary steps that need to be considered to address the health and safety concerns associated with the emerging processes have been discussed.
