  • British Compressed Gases Association (BCGA) - GN13 - DSEAR Risk Assessment
  • European Industrial Gases association (EIGA) SL04/10 - The safe transport, use and storage of acetylene cylinders
  • The Welding Fume Team (WFT) was established by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in 2010.  The aim was to bring together a group of partners to work together to raise awareness and to reduce respiratory ill health in welding and thermal cutting. To assist in achieving this aim, the WFT has produced an independent website called 'badairday'. The website will provide a resource, and links to further information on the respiratory health risks from exposure to welding and thermal cutting fume, and the control of exposure. It is aimed at both employers and employees who use welding in the workplace as part of their business or work.
