In our Blog for the metal working industry, welding suppliers, health & safety bodies, colleges, welders and other specialists it’s all about health & safety in welding.
The Blog informs about legal requirements, technical innovations or picks up on subjects within the sector. For instance, it’s about room ventilation, exhaust hoods or exhaust arms. When should which be used? Which filter class is required for which application? Why is a contamination free dust removal getting more important.

The responsibility for occupational health and safety weighs heavily. Even the management of small companies finds it difficult to deal with the scope of tasks to be fulfilled. Owners of a company can delegate tasks to their employees, however. To this end, it is essential that occupational health and safety matters are structured and well organised.read more on external page
Constructions with light metals are increasingly in demand. They are used in a variety of fields and technologies such as car manufacturing, medical engineering, nuclear usually only oxidise on the surface and therefore pose a greater risk of explosion. As a result, welding and grinding work must be strictly separated.read more on external page
The costs of oil, gas and electricity are currently rising to record levels – and posing major challenges for industrial companies. High time, then, to identify energy guzzlers in production. Modernisation or retrofitting can often increase the efficiency of systems and machines. Once this potential is exhausted, new acquisitions come into play.read more on external page
Welding fumes are made up of a number of different substances, many of which are in the nanoparticle range. How large are these ultra-fine particles and how dangerous are they to the health of welders?read more on external page
Large components, changing welding workplaces, hazardous substances, some of which are carcinogenic: Metal construction poses special challenges for occupational health and safety. The complexity of applications often requires an effective mix of measures to protect employees. Which occupational health and safety brings the greatest benefit in operation depends on several factors.read more on external page
Heart attack, stroke or arteriosclerosis: Fine dust has been proven to make people ill. A recent study on fine dust shows just how great the effects of these small particles are on our health. Fine dust, for example, promotes serious diseases. This underlines the importance of occupational health and safety, especially in welding applications, because welders are additionally exposed to particularly hazardous particles.read more on external page
What do rheumatism and fine dust have to do with one another? According to a study by the University of Verona, people exposed to high concentrations of fine dust suffer more often from autoimmune diseases than people who breathe healthier air. A study by the University of Verona provides the first indications of a link between exposure to fine dust and disease.read more on external page
Back pain, tension in the neck, pulling in the shoulder: Welders are prone to musculoskeletal disorders. One of the things to blame for this is the posture they have to adopt while working. They spend many hours a day bent over a metal part or holding the welding torch above their head.read more on external page
