AIHA’s Welding Health & Safety Guide is in its second edition, full of updated information and resources to stay current on worker health and safety. This guide is essential to understanding welding processes for health and safety professionals to anticipate, recognize, evaluate, and control welding hazards.

Presenters Mike Harris and Angela Wheeler will review what’s new in this edition, including information about local exhaust ventilation (LEV), similar exposure groups (SEGs) in exposure monitoring, and control banding. The presenters will also discuss the impact of recategorization of welding fumes as an IARC Group 1 carcinogen.

Learning Objectives

After this webinar, participants will have an updated understanding of:

  • the application of similar exposure groups (SEGs);
  • the correct use of local exhaust ventilation (LEV);
  • control band strategies for welding.

Participants will have the option to purchase the guide along with a checklist and additional resources for development of control banding.
