Exposure to welding gases, smoke and fumes can be dangerous for workers’ health, even causing lasting damage which is why it’s important to have the experts at Indventech install welding ventilation systems. These toxins can come from material handling equipment or welding smoke — the effects of two essential equipment types in the welding profession.
Since working in this environment is unavoidable for your workers, proper ventilation is essential for employee health. Learn more about how your welding shop can benefit from Indventech’s ventilation technology.
It is challenging for welders to avoid risks, as these are a necessary part of their job. However, if fumes are not contained or filtered properly, welders can be in danger of:
Overexposure to fumes can eventually cause brain, lung and nervous system damage. While these symptoms may be mild at first, they can become more severe the longer the exposure continues. Specifically, common side effects include:
In more extreme cases, long-term risks include:
Welders are at a higher risk of heat stress and exhaustion than most industry workers. This is due to their close contact with fire and need for bulky protective equipment that doesn’t ventilate well. These extreme heat conditions are especially harmful in the summer, as humidity and outside temperatures contribute to the overall heat.
Instead of enduring harmful exposures, increase employee safety with a welding ventilation system. Proper ventilation encourages natural or forced fresh air movement, reducing high fume and gas levels in the working area. Simply working outdoors does not always guarantee adequate ventilation. Consider installing fans in your welding garage or warehouse to keep your employees healthy.
