Welding made safe
Under the motto “Occupational safety in arc welding”, around 20 members of VÖSI spent an afternoon at the Fronius site in Wels. They were treated to a comprehensive presentation on the generation and prevention of welding fumes in the Welding Showroom, including on the question of which extraction systems are best suited to which requirements. A tour of the site and live demonstrations on how to prevent the hazards caused by arc radiation and electromagnetic fields, as well as on the possible uses of mobile extraction systems (Fronius Exento LowVac), forced-air welding helmets (Fronius Vizor Air/3X), and the fume extraction torch (Fronius Exento with Fronius Exento HighVac), rounded off an informative afternoon in the best possible way. The safety professionals from all over Upper Austria found the day to be highly engaging, which was also made clear by the numerous queries and lively exchanges with the Fronius experts.
