Abstract An analysis of working conditions during arc welding (physical, chemical and psychological factors, physical workload) and of the protective measures used (ear and eye protection, equipment reducing the workload, screens, exhaust ventilation) led to the construction of a welding table whose features include: adjustable height of the working surface between 35-110cm, user-friendly shape, rear and side walls forming an open shell, designed as one with the table and exhaust hood.
