This information sheet has been developed jointly between the manufacturers’ organisation EEF, HSE and the Cast Metals Federation (CMF) – and in consultation with Unite – to help those involved with welding or other processes where exposure to welding or metal fume may occur.

It gives guidance to employers who are considering offering the pneumonia vaccine (PPV) for employees exposed to welding or metal fume who may be at risk of pneumococcal lobar pneumonia.
