The HSE has advised that the Workplace Health Expert Committee has endorsed the reclassification of mild steel welding fume as a human carcinogen. This impacts all organisations with employees and contractors who undertake welding activities including mild steel, in any industry.
This means that with immediate effect, you will need to ensure the effective use of engineering controls to control fumes. Where controls are not adequate, suitable RPE is required.
