Weld fumes

Due to the nature of welding and the tasks that a welder performs daily, this puts welders at a significant risk of pneumosiderosis or Welder’s lung.

Symptoms include pneumonia, occupational asthma, cancer, metal fume fever, and temporary reduced lung function.

A workplace respiratory program that mandates respiratory protection, pulmonary function testing, Xrays and annual air quality monitoring can significantly reduce the risks.
