Welding fume awareness
The Alex Ferry Foundation has made the issue of welding fume one of its workplan priorities and is working with the Confederation of Shipbuilding and Engineering Union (CSEU). The Alex Ferry Foundation is funding a series of ten conferences around the UK for welders and managers of welding processes, and will also look to undertake other awareness-raising activity around this vital and pressing workplace issue.
You can also read all about the CSEU Welding Fume Conference, which drew 140 delegates in Glasgow.
