The Health and Safety Executive of England made an announcement that it will no longer permit any welding to be undertaken without suitable exposure control measures in place. This announcement was made in response to scientific evidence suggesting that any exposure to welding fume, including mild steel welding fume, has the potential to cause lung cancer. Limited evidence also suggests a link to kidney cancer. This information is relevant to all business who undertake welding activities.
There is no additional information available at this time.
