Abstract Following a brief analysis of the results of a questionnaire survey on working conditions in 150 welding shops (shop size), this report describes laboratory experiments on exhaust ventilation systems: experimental set-up, measurement units and methods, analog model, rising thermal current and air speed during welding, comparison of various exhaust ventilation methods for welding benches, combined exhaust positive-pressure ventilation. The results were used as the basis for rules in the design of exhaust-ventilated welding benches. Review of the ventilation systems found in various workshops visited during the study.
