ABSTRACT
This article presents a model for the assessment of the exposure to welding fumes and of their effect. The model and the hazard figure calculated with it should not be understood as an assessment in relation to occupational medicine and toxicology but are instead intended to be described with technical tools and, from a technical viewpoint, comparisons between processes, materials and workplace-specific factors and, while doing so, try to explain why a residual risk remains in the case of some welding technology work. The use of personal protective equipment (here, wearing breathing apparatus) should be recognised as a necessary supplementary protective measure (see TRGS 528 [1], particularly the sections with regard to the evaluation of the hazards and to the protective measures).
