Welding fume guidance – Free webinar
Free webinar for secondary school and premises staff

Sign up to a free webinar on welding fume guidance with experts from 3M addressing some of the common issues surrounding respiratory hazards for welders.

Register to attend the webinar for FREE which takes place on 12 June at 10:30 am and is titled ‘Clearing the air on welding fume guidance’.In February 2019, the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) issued a safety bulletin about the change in enforcement expectations for control of welding fume. 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. This is based on the outcome of recently published research by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

Consequently, there’s a strengthening of the HSE’s enforcement expectation for exposure control for all welding fume including mild and stainless steels, high chrome steels, armour plating and exotic metals. This webinar will address some of the common issues surrounding respiratory hazards for welders, including:


  • Basic respiratory hazards
  • Health effects of weld fume
  • Controlling the hazard
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
