Welding Illness Compensation Claims

Welding is the process of joining metals using heat. During the process, fumes are emitted which can be dangerous to the health of the workers. Welding fumes can harm workers in several different ways, but it mainly affects the respiratory system. If you have been harmed by welding fumes or have developed an illness as a result of inhaling welding fumes, you may be eligible to make welding illness compensation claims.

Common Illnesses Caused By Welding Fumes

Being exposed to welding fumes can cause a number of illnesses and injuries. Some of the common illnesses and injuries include:

  • Occupational asthma – when welding stainless steel, chromium and nickel fumes are released which can cause respiratory problems if inhaled. In addition, if there is inadequate protection and poor ventilation, the worker may be at a risk of developing occupational asthma.
  • Chronic bronchitis – can occur if welding is done in an area that is poorly ventilated
  • Welder’s siderosis – is a condition which can be caused if iron particles are inhaled into the lungs and retained in the lungs
  • Manganism – chronic exposure to manganese can result in this condition

If exposure is continued over a long period of time, it may increase the risk of developing lung cancer.
