2. Productivity - Less time is wasted cleaning the collected particles from the work area and welding lens
3. Talent - A safe and clean environment is more enticing, and may lead to better employees and an easier hiring process
4. Comfort - In some cases, a properly applied and maintained source fume extraction system can allow the welder to work without a respirator
