More than half a million U.S. workers perform welding, cutting, brazing and soldering work as part of their jobs every day.
Welding Safety reminds employees that there are a number of hazards associated with welding and cutting tasks, and explains the equipment and safe practices employees can use to avoid them. In a year’s time, these tasks will kill more than fifty of them. Thousands more will be injured. Some of their workplaces will have been damaged by fires and explosions as well.
Topics covered in this program:
Include the potential hazards of welding, designated areas, work permits and confined spaces, preventing fires while welding, protecting against toxic fumes, goggles, helmets and hand shields, gloves, clothing and other protective equipment and more.
