What’s in it for me?

An opportunity to keep up to date with the HSE’s current activities and expectations.

The presentations will focus on the health hazards of the different dusts. We will cover welding fumes also. The presentations will look at the hierarchy of control for dust and then the different grades of RPE applicable to the different dusts / fumes.
