Excelsior, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/19/2015 -- Kevin Weaver, U.S. Compliance Corp Advisor, discussed the recent metal shop shut down at the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Stillwater after test results showed too much metal was in the air. After the tests were conducted, Occupational Safety and Health Administration inquired about training for offenders on the hazardous substances they are exposed to in the welding shop.
"OSHA has very formal limits they establish for specific metals and weld fumes in general," Kevin Weaver, a Senior Director at the U.S. Compliance Corporation in Excelsior, said. Weaver works with manufacturers and welders all across the country to make sure their safety measures meet state and federal standards. He says continuous exposure to hazardous materials in the air creates a concern for long term health effects. "It could be a breathing problem or some sort of lung issue," he said.
