  • Welding Fumes and the effects of Manganese

    The potential risks of welding operations include the potential to breathe in metal fumes and toxic gases. Fume particles are formed from the vaporisation of molten metal that occurs during the process. These particles are very fine in size and may join together to form larger particles.. The biggest risk is exposure to the manganese contained in fumes that are given off during welding. ...
