Lincoln Electric Launches Welding Fume Awareness Campaign

The Lincoln Electric Company has launched its “Are You Ready?”
awareness campaign, designed to educate employers, as well as the
general welding community, about effective fume control practices. The
campaign is also designed to help fabricators understand both recent
and upcoming Occupational Health & Safety Administration (OSHA)
regulations, including the hexavalent chromium standards going into
effect on May 31, 2010.

 

The
campaign promotes welding fume control and safety awareness and offers
access to a comprehensive one-stop shop of reference materials,
interactive tools and product solutions for weld fume control. This
Lincoln Electric initiative is intended to educate the welding
community on current and pending OSHA regulations and the proper
operating practices to follow, particularly in reference to
occupational exposure to welding fume containing hexavalent chromium
and manganese.

 

Although
arc welding is a safe process when sufficient measures are taken to
protect the welder from potential hazards, Lincoln Electric has made it
an integral part of the company’s welding training mission to promote
welding safety. The company publishes welding safety documents for the
welding community and continuously trains welding operators regarding
proper welding techniques, processes and resources. 

 

The first resource available to launch the “Are You Ready?” campaign is the interactive Web site at: www.lincolnelectric.com/weld-fume-control.

 

The
Web site is a resource for individuals seeking more information on
methods of welding fume control which may be implemented to address
OSHA regulations. It will also provide links to materials, including
articles, white papers and videos along with other valuable tools and
information pertaining to weld fume control, welder safety and
solutions offered by Lincoln Electric.

 

Employers
can also submit questions regarding OSHA regulations by sending a
message to a team of knowledgeable Lincoln Electric personnel at [email protected], which was established as part of the “Are You Ready?” campaign.
