Preventing exposure to welding fumes in the United Kingdom

Good Practice Awards 2018-19: Commended organisation

The British Occupational Hygiene Society was commended for developing a simple online tool to help workers select the most effective measures for controlling welding fumes.

A panel of experts developed the web-based platform which directed the workers easily towards a tool that generates a guidance sheet detailing the most appropriate control measures to use for welding fumes.

The tool is free to use and publicly available, a useful resource for businesses and organisations in any sector in which welding is carried out.
