This study demonstrated a statistically significant increase in welder productivity (as measured by weld wire applied), as well as positive welder assessments of comfort and improved weld quality, plus an opportunity to reduce the potential for eye injuries when welders used an integrated PPE respiratory PAPR system.
This case study examines two different welding PPE configurations being tested and the outcomes at a major shipbuilding facility.
The provisions reduce the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) over an eight-hour period and establish a new 15-minute Short Term Exposure Limit (STEL). Because of these changes to the exposure levels, employers have requirements that they must meet.
Why change colors? The ability to change colors may help with the ability to see the weld puddle better.
Have you thought about an integrated solution? This option may help when metalworking tasks change, you can remain protected without having to change your gear.
If you are not wearing a respirator, or have not been properly medically evaluated, trained or fitted and are using respiratory protection, there is still a chance you are breathing in welding fume.
