Welding fumes are extremely hazardous and can be dangerous to workers health, causing conditions such as occupational asthma, pneumonia, metal fume fever and even cancer. It is a legal requirement that employers protect their workers health by ensuring the correct welding fume control is in place.
Once the most suitable type of fume control has been installed, it is also important that it is used properly, maintained and regularly monitored to ensure maximum effectiveness.
