This consultation seeks views on the UK’s proposed approach to implement European Directive 2013/35/EU on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to the risks arising from physical agents (electromagnetic fields). This consultation ends on 3 December 2015.
The Welding Fume Team (WFT) was established by HSE in 2010 and has a broad membership with representatives from across a range of interests. The WFT works together to raise awareness of the respiratory hazards of fume from welding and thermal cutting applications. Read more about welding top tips, case studies and the WFT.
Three vocational education and training-based (VET) learning products/materials were developed in order to raise awareness of long latency respiratory health risks in three of the high risk vocational areas affected by these issues. The aims of the study were to explore how the VET materials can be implemented, and the perceived effectiveness of the implementation.
