If you are an employer, contractor or worker who undertakes welding activities (including mild steel) in any industry, you should ensure compliance with the new standards.
Change in Enforcement Expectations for Mild Steel Welding Fume:
There is new scientific evidence from the International Agency for Research on Cancer that exposure to mild steel welding fume can cause lung cancer and possibly kidney cancer in humans.
The Workplace Health Expert Committee has endorsed the reclassification of mild steel welding fume as a human carcinogen.
Consequences for Employers:
With immediate effect, there is a strengthening of HSE’s enforcement expectation for all welding fume, including mild steel welding; because general ventilation does not achieve the necessary control.
Every welder deserves to work in a clean environment, and we are committed to raising the working standards in the industry.
