health risks with the welding of galvanized sheets?
my friend works in a factory where his genius welding in galvanized and he has asthma and I was wondering what the long-term effects of welding these things could be me Abit worried that this could be bad I know that some short-term.
fume fever is the most common condition resulting from welding galvanized (zinc coated) metal fume fever is a species of intoxication metal, and the symptoms are similar to flu, but tends to be triggered by the end of the week and again next week. I do not know if you have long-term effects. If this happens to treat it as a warning sign that the ventilation should be improved, as decent ventilation to reduce exposure to vapors of zinc. also should reduce exposure other gases / fumes or products used in welding. Problems such as electric arcs (like bad sunburn and can cause eye damage) can be avoided by ensuring a proper welding mask, and keep covered. — These are some research for the UK HSE (Health and Safety Executive) in issues with local exhaust ventilation http://www.hse.gov.uk/research/rrpdf/rr683.pdf
