The Practical Guide to Welding Fume Control!

Article By: Team AWS

After a four year review of available literature on the subject, publishing numerous white papers and industry reports, and in conjunction with welders, industry professionals and occupational hygienists, AWS is proud to announce the release of ‘A Practical Guide to Welding Fume Control’.

This guide is based on a simple premise - the health risk posed by welding fume is serious, however, keeping yourself safe can be straightforward.

Consequently, in this guide, we outline the dangers of welding fume and then give you actionable and practical guidance based specifically on the welding industry.

The crux of it is simple: if there is welding to be done, welding fume will be present. So, what can welders and employers do to control this known carcinogen?
