Lincoln Electric Launches New Campaign to Create Awareness of New EPA Regulations

Lincoln Electric, Automation Division

Remember Lincoln Electric’s “Are You Ready?” awareness campaign to educate employers and the general welding community about the new OSHA regulations, including the hexavalent chromium standards?

Lincoln Electric is now introducing phase 2.0 of its “Are You Ready?” campaign. The campaign and its supporting materials are designed to aid fabricators in understanding the effects and requirements associated with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Metal Fabrication Hazardous Air Pollutants (MFHAP) and National Emissions Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) regulation.

The campaign promotes effective welding fume control and safety practices, offering access to a comprehensive one-stop shop of reference materials, tools and product solutions.

In an effort to help you educate your readers, we’ve created an interactive press kit, which includes:

  • A campaign overview release and background information on the NESHAP regulation
  • Access to resources about fume control safety and welding safety training programs 
  • An area devoted to information about products for extracting fumes and harmful emissions and improving indoor air quality 
  • A robust image library that contains fume control product and application images
