Welding fume - health risks involved

The health risks of welding fume, and how to reduce them in the workshop

9/3/2019

In 2017, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) released new scientific evidence showing that exposure to mild steel welding fume can cause lung cancer, and possibly kidney cancer, in humans. As a result, mild steel welding fume has been reclassified as a human carcinogen in the United Kingdom, and it is likely that other countries will follow suit. Moreover, this recent discovery indicates that all welding fume should be seen as potentially carcinogenic, and that measures will need to be taken in order to reduce the health hazards caused by welding fume exposure.

In a work environment where hazardous fumes are present, having an efficient and convenient exhaust extraction system in place is essential. Some emergency vehicles, such as fire trucks, emit diesel exhaust fumes. These are dangerous particulates, which must be removed in a way that ensures both the safety of the personnel and the ability of vehicles to quickly be dispatched from the station in the event of an emergency.
