Reclassification of welding fume as carcinogenic from an Australian perspective

There is no doubt that the recent reclassification of welding fume as carcinogenic to humans by the International Agency for the Research on Cancer (IARC) has encouraged many welders and workplaces to rethink their stance on welders’ respiratory protection.

This second white paper on welding fume by AWS aims to investigate the recent reclassification from an Australian perspective pulling relevant information from multiple sources into one easy to read 12 page document, so that Australian employers of welders and welders themselves can make better decisions regarding welding fume and suitable respiratory protective measures.
