Welding operations have high potential hazards associated with the various tasks performed. A potential hazard that can be mechanically or naturally abated is the accumulation of airborne fumes.
Either by using motorized equipment or air tunnels, the accumulation of harmful fumes can be kept to a minimum when air flow is introduced. This picture demonstrates how even large buildings can fill with fumes and CO2 from machinery. Utilizing natural air flow by opening the northern and southern doors allowed clean air to circulate.
