OSHA Hierarchy for Weld Fume Control
There are many ways to control weld fume — from implementing a welding process change or new filler metal to the use of personal protective equipment. OSHA’s hierarchy of controls starts with controls that are perceived to be most effective and moves down to those considered least effective.
When determining an action plan, start at the top and work your way down the hierarchy — selecting the controls that are the most feasible, effective and permanent for your workplace. It may be necessary to implement multiple solutions to achieve the desired results.
With products that fulfill every level of OSHA’s hierarchy, and Safety Solutions Managers who are here to work with industrial hygienists and guide you through the process, Miller® and ITW welding products are your single-source solution for weld fume control.
