Danger from welding fumes: Welding processes can cause a variety of health risks

Welding fumes are dangerous to the health of welders, that’s obvious. But the particular risks they entail depend primarily on the welding processes and the materials they use. There are big differences. This collection of texts about the particular dangers … >> more

Vaccinating against welding fumes? How welders prevent an increased risk of pneumonia

Welders are exposed to a greater risk of contracting pneumococcal infections. The Standing Vaccination Committee of the Robert Koch Institute therefore advises vaccination against pneumococcae. According to researchers, this prevents weakening of the immune system and its potential consequences, including … >> more

Thermal spraying: Closed booths with extraction are essential

Depending on the process, thermal spraying causes a large amount of hazardous substances and a lot of noise. This means one thing above all else: High demands placed on occupational health and safety – because although thermal spraying processes are … >> more

Welding in confined spaces: How welders protect themselves effectively

Welding positions while processing workpieces is not always ideal for welders. Especially when welding in confined spaces, they reach the limits in reliability of their own safety equipment. When it comes the extraction of welding fumes, the welder himself is particularly important.

Nine reasons why general ventilation systems make sense for metal processing companies

Air quality in the entire production area is becoming ever more important. General ventilation systems play an increasingly important role in effective occupational health and safety. They are always only a supplement to source extraction. Nevertheless, nine reasons show why the purchase of a workshop ventilation system is worthwhile for metal processing companies.

New study: Ultrafine dust is a very common cause of cardiovascular diseases

Ultrafine dust leads to more cardiovascular diseases than acute heart attacks, cardiac insufficiency or cardiac arrhythmia – that’s the result of a new study. Welders are particularly affected. Most of the particles that can be found in welding fumes are … >> more

Long-lasting filter technology This is what welders need to know about the inside of their extraction unit

Mit noch mehr Arbeitsschutz ins neue Jahr...

The filter technology is decisive in determining the longevity of an extraction unit. The elementary extraction of hazardous substances is decided inside the device. A major factor in determining service life whether it should be a storage filter or an … >> more

Dimensioning of workshop ventilation: What welding companies need to know before installation

Eine Raumlüftung ist eine Ergänzung zu Punktabsaugungen.

Oversized extraction units and workshop ventilation systems, as well as incorrect planning of the airflow, can be harmful: in addition to effective work safety, companies are also concerned about cost-efficiency. The correct sizing and planning of the ventilation system is … >> more

Local extraction during welding: The welders should pay attention to the following when selecting an extraction device

Beim Schweißrauch wird es vor allem Nanobereich extrem gefährlich für Schweißer.

Local extraction is the first choice for welding with regards to occupational safety. It ensures that welding fumes are detected right at the source and thus has the greatest chances in achieving high extraction rates. What type of local extraction … >> more

How do ultrafine welding fume particles get into the body and what effects do they have?

Welding smoke carcinogenic? International researchers say "yes".

During welding, ultrafine particles are created which are breathed in or swallowed by welders. The smallest particles often cause the greatest damage. Yet, how exactly do these ultrafine particles affect the welder? And what kind of defense mechanism does the … >> more
