HOT TOPICS IN THE WELDING WORLD
Welding Fumes Reclassified as a Human Carcinogen
The International Agency for Research on Cancer has found new scientific evidence that exposure to welding fumes from mild steel, can evidently cause lung, and possibly kidney, cancer in humans. Following this, the Workplace Health Expert Committee has endorsed the reclassification of mild steel welding fumes as a human carcinogen. If you work in the welding industry, are a contractor or employer, this will affect you.
What Small Steps Can you Take?
Secondly, we need to indentify whether there is a need install fume extraction. We can install our Environmental Detection Instrument which will help identify whether improvements are needed.

Jack Ellmers, Level 3 Apprentice, Barret's of Aspley
You should employ Gary as a trainer, RWC or whatever, but if you don't, don't worry because he will be a comedian too!
Ricard Fletcher, Level 3 Apprentice, Barret's of Aspley
At level 2 I lacked confidence in my trainers and I was dreading starting level 3. My company then employed Gary and everything changed, his obvious skills and knowledge increased all of our confidence and we are now half way through Level 3. Gary is a quality teacher, trainer and back this up with quality workplace banter! Finally learning is fun again.
Michael Newbery, MD, New Steel Solutions LTD
We engaged with Gary as our RWC. His no fuss attitude suits our approach and we quickly got our EN 1090 Accreditation EXC2. We then achieved EXC3 within the next year. This man is technically excellent and then he puts on his helmet. Whether its MIG, TIG, MMA, Steel, Aluminum, Flat, Horizontal/Vertical up or overhead, he can do it too. His welding is fantastic.ddd
Anthony Taylor, Level 3 Apprentice, Barret's of Aspley
Gary is a great teacher, welder and inspector. He makes things that are usually quite difficult to understand a walk in the park. From an apprentice's point of view, communication is key and he offers the best support and unending knowledge
