Our upcoming events and conferences for BESA members.Read More
Following the success of the Welding Fume and Metalworking Fluid Webinar that we ran earlier this year (a free recording is available to view HERE), we are running a follow-up.
The webinar will include a presentation on Local Exhaust Ventilation, a key control measure for metalworking fluids and welding fume and an extended Q&A session, for anyone that still has questions on controlling exposure to these substances.
Metalworking fluids can cause occupational asthma, occupational hypersensitivity pneumonitis and dermatitis. All welding fumes (including mild steel) are classed as carcinogens.
HSE inspectors are visiting businesses to check that welding work and use of metalworking fluids are planned and carried out correctly to minimise risk to workers’ health.
