Welding fumes are estimated to impact approximately 100,000 workers in Canada and in 2017 welding fumes were declared by the International Agency for Research on Cancer to be carcinogenic to humans.
Despite their prevalence and hazardous nature, welding fumes are not well understood or controlled, perhaps due to the complex nature of the work and the hazards. This technical session will discuss the hazards, determinants of exposure, exposure assessment strategies and real life examples of effective controls.
