What are the legal requirements surrounding fume & oil smoke exposure in the workplace?

All businesses regardless of size are bound by the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002. COSHH is designed to minimise exposure to harmful airborne particles and protect workers’ health.

HSE Compliance

The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) strengthened its enforcement expectations around mild steel welding fume in February 2019 following evidence that it can cause lung cancer and possibly kidney cancer. All businesses that undertake welding must ensure they implement the hierarchy of controls to minimise exposure to welding fume.
