Controlling Hazardous Fume and Gases during Welding Welding joins materials together by melting a metal work piece along with a filler metal to form a strong joint. The welding process produces visible smoke that contains harmful metal fume and gas by-products. in enforcement expectations for control of welding fume.1 All welding fume (including mild steel) is now classed as a carcinogen which can cause lung cancer and has the potential to cause kidney cancer. The reclassification of welding fume as a human carcinogen followed the outcome of published research. Links with this icon indicate that you are leaving the CDC website..

The control of fumes and gases in arc welding is an important workplace health and safety issue. Fortunately, many solutions are available to improve fume control, providing users with a number of options to comply with applicable exposure limits.
All welding fume can cause lung cancer, so you must put controls in place. HSE has issued a safety alert about the health risks of welding fume. Welding fume can also cause asthma and many other health conditions. You can control risks to health from welding fumes by: using alternative cold joining techniques; welding in a way that produces. Welding fumes are a complex mixture of metallic oxides, silicates and fluorides. Fumes are formed when a metal is heated above its boiling point and its vapours condense into very fine, particles (solid particulates). Welding fumes generally contain particles from . Fume Control AirFab GSE provide specialist central ducted systems for welding fume extraction, general fume extraction and other applications such as extraction tables for fumes and dust created during metal grinding processes. Fume extraction systems are included in OSHA’s Hierarchy of Controls for managing fume, and are designed to keep your employees comfortable and compliant. Our complete line of FILTAIR® fume extractors are designed specifically for welding, drawing weld fumes away from the user’s breathing zone and keeping your facility clean.
Welding fume is one of the hazards on which CPWR—The Center for Construction Research and Training's Exposure Control Database 1 is .
