Welding - Health and safety in welding

Welding poses a range of hazards to your health. These can act quickly such as electric shock or exposure to cadmium fumes, or they may show up in the long term such as lung and breathing disorders. In order to address some of these problems we have adopted The Australian standard TN7 and Fume Minimisation Guidelines as a framework for minimising the risk of accidents and occupational health problems in welding. The main points and recommendations of the standard have been condensed into a user-friendly illustrated Guide to Health and Safety in Welding and a workplace assessment tool.
