Can you just weld outside instead?!
Taken from the HSE website
Appropriate RPE should be provided for welding outdoors. You should ensure welders are suitably instructed and trained in the use of these controls.

Regardless of duration, HSE will no longer accept any welding undertaken without any suitable exposure control measures in place, as there is no known level of safe exposure.

If you need any advise on welding fume extraction my son is in business selling and installing extraction equipment both new and second hand.
He has 30 years experience and I am sure will offer you sound advice.
Telephone Richard at RAM Environmental on 01384 221737 or mobile 07790 821511

the cynical side of me asks, Why now?.
its not today or yesterday that we put a man on the moon, shurley they knew before now that welding fumes were a problem so whats the big panic in the ruling at this stage, i know its the right thing to be doing if its such a carcinogenic operation but i really have to wonder whos ass are they covering...
dont tell me its only dawning on them at this stage to make it law, what about all the welding thats been done since welders were invented and the people that did it.
its law now and everyone will have to comply but its a massive swoop across the board, its not often they hit something that hard.

So what are people with on farm welders doing about this? Seems an air fed mask the only option if you may be welding outside.

It’ll be another reason to export more production to other countries where labour and lives are cheap.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
