Will a Non Air Fed Helmet Be Adequate For My Welding Work?
Following the publication of HSE advice and their recommendation for protection of workers against inhalation of the dust and fumes that welding always kicks up, we would err on the side of caution and recommend an air fed model. However if you are able to create a workplace where the ventilation can pull all the fumes away from the welding spot then a basic mask / helmet will keep you protected from the Ultra-Violet and Infra-Red radiation. The UV radiation in particular is also viewed as a Group 1 carcinogen by the IARC as reported by AIHA in its round up of welding risks from 2017.
