Comply With OSHA/NIOSH Regulations
The fumes transmitted during welding processes present various health hazards. Long-term exposure to weld fume presents serious health and safety risks. The elements found in weld fumes vary based on the composition of the electrode and the coatings, paint, or plating of the base metal.
Employers are responsible for workplace conditions, safety measures, and the way that machine processes are performed. It's critical that employers and welders remain current and abide by appropriate OSHA and NIOSH regulations and follow manufacturer safety and operation manuals.
When selecting a welding fume extraction system, it's important to identify the work practices, hazards, and consumables of the welding applications in your facility to establish a required level of fume control to keep exposures below an acceptable limit.
To ensure effectiveness, welding fume extraction systems must be properly used and positioned based on the specific machining process and application taking place.
