    This is a Sheffield Branch event organised and run by the Sheffield Branch Committee on behalf of Sheffield Branch members. Other members are very welcome to register for this talk. Non-Members are also welcome to join us.

    Overview: Steel that did not rust or stain (known now as stainless steel) was developed by Harry Brearley in 1914 – but he was not a metalworker.  To see if the new material could be of use for cutlery he brought it to R F Mosley’s at Portland Works, just as the First World War was about to start. The workers there made knives within a month or two, and by 1915 'Rusnorstain' was on sale at established Mosley outlets in Australia. It revolutionized the cutlery and metal industries.  This talk tells you about its development, and also about Robert Mosley and Portland Works.  Some examples of the early work  and of earlier cutlery that has not survived so well will be available..

    Speaker: Anna de Lange, Historian at Portland Works

    This is a Welding Institute webinar organised for our global membership. Non-Members are also welcome to join us.

    Overview: In this presentation, we will discuss the latest recommendations for controlling welding fume and the hierarchy of control methods, including a review of workplace exposure limits. Information on welding fume generation will be presented along with an explanation on how the emission rate and composition of the fume is affected by process and parameters. This presentation will detail the latest information related to enforcement of welding fume exposure in the UK, as well as providing an understanding of welding fume and how to control exposure.

    Speaker:   Geoff Melton SenMWeldI CEng

    Speaker Biography: TWI Technology Manager, Geoff Melton is the Chairman of IIW Commission VIII, ‘Health, Safety and the Environment,’ as well as the chair of CENELEC TC26 on electric welding equipment. Geoff was also instrumental in the creation of a working group set up between IEC and ISO to write a new series of international standards for arc welding equipment (IEC 60974). This led to the development of standards for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and the health effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) in welding. Having graduated with a degree in physics and electronics, he has worked in welding research and development for nearly 40 years. In addition, Geoff has an MBA and is a Chartered Engineer and Chartered Physicist. At TWI, he leads a wide portfolio of research projects ‐ from welding fume to automated welding process developments for low/zero emission automotive applications.
