HSE focuses inspections on metal fabrication

Following the reclassification of welding fumes as a group one carcinogenic in February 2019, the HSE announced enforced control measures for those undertaking welding operations. As part of this, between January and March this year, the HSE is targeting inspections at sites that undertake metal fabrications, with a particular focus on the control of exposure to welding fume and metal working fluids. Metal working fluids pose risks of occupational asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis and dermatitis.
