HSE Inspecting Metal Fabrication Sites

The HSE will be inspecting sites that carry out metal fabrication between January and March to check on compliance with the law.

The focus will be  on control of exposure to welding fume and metalworking fluids.

All welding fumes (including mild steel) are now classed as carcinogens. Metalworking fluids can cause occupational asthma, occupational hypersensitivity pneumonitis and dermatitis.

There is revised guidance available so organizations can protect your workers from these serious health hazards.  Please see the links below
