HSE targeted inspections
Breathing in welding fume and metalworking fluids can cause serious lung diseases.
HSE inspectors continue to visit businesses across Great Britain as part of their targeted inspections programme. Inspectors are checking that welding and working with metalworking fluids are planned correctly to minimise risk to workers’ health.
If your workers use metalworking fluids or undertake welding activities, make sure your business is taking the necessary precautions by visiting the HSE's new Work Right website and downloading their top tips and watching their presentation on metalworking fluids.
