Welding Galvanized Steel

Postby Lamar » Mon Nov 28, 2016 4:17 pm

What are some of the risks and symptoms associated with welding on galvanized steel without a respirator and proper ventilation?? My fiance' was welding for about six months, welding on galvanized off and on and he did not use a respirator even though I insisted. He seems to have problems gaining weight and I was wondering if that might have something to do with it.thank you~Danielle

: Danielle.  I am neither an occupational physician or certified industrial hygienist so all I can do is give you some general references as a place to start.  If your fiancée is experiencing specific physiological problems, I would feel that only a physician has the expertise you need.  If you will go to the following: http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/searchresults.category?p_text=welding&p_title=&p... you will find a listing of references regarding welding, air sampling, etc. but probably not the specific information you need.  You can also go to http://www.osha.gov/doc/outreachtraining/htmlfiles/weldhlth.html for some additional material.  Again, I can not over emphasize the need to seek the help of an occupational physician or respiratory specialist who would have the needed knowledge.  And I apologize for not being able to give you an exact answer.
