Double standard, will it hold up in court?
Welding smoke is far more hazardous than secondhand smoke. But air quality testing regulates welding smoke to be safer than OSHA indoor air quality workplace regulations for employee exposure, so lawmakers are not calling for a ban on welding smoke.
Secondhand smoke on the other hand has been proven to be 15 – 25,000 times SAFER than OSHA workplace regulations for secondhand smoke exposure….and yet activists and lawmakers claim this is a health hazard requiring government intervention…….this double standard will not prevail in an objective court of law, and / or legislative review.
(Ventilation equipment is allowed in the industrial workplace to improve air quality, why not in the commercial workplace?)
