  I suggest you do a quicksearch on health effects of welding fumes. I identified 136 references, many are quite recent. The paper "Health Effects of Welding Fumes" by J M Antonini published in the Journal I edite , Critical Reviiews in Toxicology Vol 33 :61-103 (2003)  is still highly relevant.
   Good luck.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Welding Fumes


I plan to monitor welding fumes in our student welding bay and am looking for suggestions of anything to include other than particulates, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.


Thanks for any suggestions=E2=80=A6
