Metal Fabrication Health Risks
Any time metals are welded, grinded, deburred, laser cut, or plasma cut, dangerous dust, fumes, gases, smoke (or a combination of these) are emitted, creating serious health and safety risks for machine operators.
The type and size of particulate, as well as, the severity of contamination exposure will vary based on what metal and process is being used.
For example, fumes can consist of:
While gases may be made up of,
Depending on the application, welding, grinding, deburring, and laser and plasma cutting can all result in different health effects.
The efficiency of your current extraction system and how long operators are exposed to hazardous dust, smoke, or fumes will determine the seriousness of injuries.
