The intuitive question-and-response format details actual customer questions received at the Lincoln Automation Division customer service desk. Interested fabricators can learn what is required to comply with current regulations and gather tips on how set up a workspace, efficiently operate a fume system and better understand workplace safety as it relates to welding fume.


The handy desk guide also identifies key industry and government documents regarding current and proposed legislation. For example, U.S. welding fabricators should become familiar with additional OSHA requirements for the engineering control of hexavalent chromium exposures, which take effect May 31, 2010. All employers will be required to have engineering controls implemented to contain hexavalent chromium exposures to the OHSA Permissible Exposure Limit.
