Metal fabrication can be extremely hazardous, especially arc and oxygen-fueled welding processes. Welders need to carry the torch for safety to protect themselves and their co-workers from harm and prevent property damage. Following standard operating procedures will help minimize the dangers associated when working with high voltage and combustible gases.
This Video On Demand explains how to inspect oxy-fueled and high-voltage welding equipment, and how to guard against light, eye damage, dangerous fumes and hearing loss. The conditions and procedures which require the use of exhaust fans and respirators are explained. The importance of using the correct filter on a respirator is emphasized.
Viewers learn about the proper protective gloves, boots, aprons, and other clothing to minimize exposure to heat burns, light burns and clothing ignition. Fire is a constant danger around welding operations, and this video explains strategies to reduce this risk. Welders are reminded a fire watch is needed for 30 minutes after operations have ceased.
Welding is an inherently risky and dangerous process. Every welder needs to view this training program to reinforce safe operating procedures to guard their health and well-being, as well as that of their co-workers. This is an eye-opening video for those who have been on the job for a while, as well for as apprentice welders and those aspiring to pick up the torch.
