Safety Tips for Welders
22 Feb 2021
Welding is a dangerous job and that danger is recognized all around the world. Anywhere you go, there will be safety procedures that you will have to follow. Welding safety tips are pretty much universal. The same procedures will apply no matter what part of the world you might be working in. No matter how hot the area you are working in is, make sure that you protect yourself from ultraviolet and infrared rays, hot metal, and sparks. If it is ninety degrees out, you may be tempted to slack off on the protective wear in order to be cooler. However, keep in mind that sparks and slag are much hotter. You will quickly end up with burns from the ultraviolet light or from sparks. Ignore the heat and avoid the burns by always wearing your protective gear no matter where you are.

However, since most nations follow the same welding safety tips that companies in America do, you ha...

The shield protects the eyes from the ultraviolet light that is put off by welding equipment. This light can cause significant damage to the eyes. The shield also protects the face and hair from stray sparks. The gloves protect hands which would otherwise would be exposed to the stray sparks and the apron prevent sparks from burning the body or catching clothing on fire. No one should operate a welder that has not had the proper training. The floor on which the welding is occurring must be either fireproof or...
