Description

The idea behind this use of video is to focus on welding metal parts and exposure to welding fumes. It uses PIMEX (Picture Mix Exposure), which involves videoing and taking exposure measurements while a person is undertaking a task. The worker can observe his or her work in the video, see how the extraction system can work best and learn how to place it in an optimal position to prevent exposure to welding fumes.
