Video Transcript

Welding Safety
Everyday welders in various industries use high temperatures to shape metals, sometimes the metal is bond together at the time it's cut apart. Over the years engineers have developed variety of methods to welding, the combination of spark, oxygen and a flammable gas provide the energy for oxy-fuel cutting, welding and braising. Eye-folded electricity whether its alone or use in tandem with various gases powers arc welding. Because of the heat and the materials involved these welding methods can all be very hazardous but no mater which type of welding you're working with there are things that you can do to make your work safe.

Standard Operating Procedures
The first to do is to inspect through equipment. When you're working with oxy-fuel unit make sure that your torch has right tip for the job ahead. Examine the cylinder bags and fittings, this must be clean and tear before you connect the torch and hoses. Let's everything setup, apply a soap solution to check for gas leaks some problems can be solve by simply tightening the connection. Arc welding unit also need to be check out. Inspect the frame of the generator for proper grounding. Make sure the work lead and electro lever are properly connected. And don't forget to examine cables for damage insulation or bare conductors. If left unrepaired this can cause a severe shock.

Inspecting your equipment is a good place to start, the burning presents dangerous from start to finish, it is important to be prepared for hazards throughout the entire process, whether it's intense light, flying sparks, toxic fumes or electric shock you need to protect yourself and others from danger. Let's take look at the hazards that all welders encounter.

The powerful ultraviolet and infrared light produce during welding operations as one of the first thing people remember about welding. Unfortunately, there's a light can be extremely hazardous, if left unprotected your eyes can suffer problems like the short term discomfort of welder's flash. More serious injuries like burn to the retina can permanently damage your eyesight and may be even cause blindness.

Goggles with special lenses must be worn during oxy-fuel cutting, welding and braising. Special lenses blocked hazardous light and help shield your eyes multiple splatter. Arc welding produces an intense light that requires even stronger protection, here you need a helmet or hand shield these are fitted with especially designed filters which screen out on awful light rays. In additional in protecting your eyes, the designed and size of helmet and hand shields will prevent the light from burning face, neck and ears. Don't forget that safety glasses must still be worn underneath your helmet or hand shield for complete protection, make sure all your protection equipment is in good condition before you start work. If you spot any imperfections get a replacement.

Hazardous light can affect those around you as well. Setting up protective screens will help shield other workers from the light generated while you work. You should also warn other workers in the area before striking an arc, this helps keep people from accidentally looking at the arc. Once you've protected yourself and others from dangerous light you need to deal with other hazards. Unfortunately, some of these may not be easy to see.

Hazardous fumes are a by-product of many welding operations without proper ventilation these fumes will collect then contaminate the air. You will need to protect yourself by using exhaust fan or other mechanical ventilation devices whenever you're welding with; 

- stainless steel
- lead
- mercury
- fluorine compounds
- zinc
- cadmium
- beryllium
- chemical cleaning compounds

It's especially important to use mechanical ventilation with range with less than 10,000 ft³ per welder their ceilings are lower than 16 ft and in confined spaces where regular ventilation is block. Short period of exposure to hazardous fumes can lead to irritation to the eyes, nose and throat even the illnesses like metal fume fever. Repeated exposure over many years can lead to lung cancer and severe damage to the nervous system. To avoid these problems you must maintain a healthy breathing zone, this means getting lots of air flowing around your work with you using screen or other barriers live enough space between the barrier and the floor to allow for good air movement.

Sometimes even mechanical ventilation devices aren't enough to protect you, in these situations you'll need a respirator. But before you can wear a respirator on the job, you must be fit tested this ensures that the respirator you're wearing is the right size for your face. It's important to remember that respirators are fitted with filters that catches hazardous fumes. Make sure you're using the correct filters for the fumes and gases you'll be exposed to, wearing the wrong filter can lead to disastrous situation and remember if you need to wear one of these you can't wear one of this. You may not think about it first but hearing protection is also a necessity on many welding jobs.

Molten pieces of metal around and banging away its side are just two of the things that can make a welding environment very noisy. If you don't take the proper precautions you could be exposed to noise levels that can result in real problems. Short period of exposure to loud noise can lead to fatigue and irritability. Extended exposure can lead to partial or even total hearing loss. To guard against these hazards you need to protect yourself with earplugs, canal caps or earmuffs. This will reduce the noise that your ears are exposed to. If you have any questions about which hearing protection you should use ask your supervisor, of course to be completely safe there are few other things you need to know as well.

Protective Clothing
Welding can produce a lot of heat. To protect you hands you'll need a good strong pair of leather gloves. Many welding gloves offer additional protection in the form of welting, here an extra piece of leather is sawn into the finger and palm of the glove this extra layer of leather protects the thread of the glove from getting burn by intense heat. But even with this extra protection you need to be careful, never hold heated metal with your gloves it can burn right through them. If you need to manipulate hot objects use insulated clamps or other tools.

The type of clothing you wear also plays a role in welding safely. Dress in natural fibers like cotton and wool these are less likely to ignite than synthetic fibers. Wearing long sleeves shirt will protect you from hazardous light, remember just like the ultraviolet light from the sun UV light from the welding operations can burn your screen . Adding leather aprons and sleeves on top of what you're wearing it keeps sparks from burning through your clothes. Another great ideas to wear hightop shoes. This keep sparks and molten metal away from your ankles and feet. What's your dress to the work? No matter what type of welding you're going to do you need to reduce the risks of fire.

Fire Prevention
Sparks, high temperatures and flammable gases can all lead to fire. To combat the risks of fire many facilities limit the areas where welding can take place. Never begin to weld unless your facility has authorized the work. This will confirm that the area you will be working in is considered safe for welding operations. Sparks are a by-product in just about every welding operation with then even starting fire requires a concentrated efforts.

Before welding, you need anything that can burn from the area. It is especially important not to weld around combustible materials like wood, paper or fuel these ignite easily and can quickly bursted the flames if they're exposed to sparks or high temperatures. Aerosol can should also be remove from areas where welding is taking place. These cans hold gases that are under a lot of pressure when they are exposed to intense heat the gases will expand, this could cause the can to explode. If there are ignitable materials in the area that can't easily be move use guards or barriers to protect them from sparks and heat. Sweep up any debris that may be lying on the floor it's best to sweep in the 35 foot radius beginning at the spot where are you going to weld. In the event that a fire could still ignite a trained fire watcher is required to stand by. This person should know the ins and outs of firefighting and will be ready to extinguish a fire that breaks out. 

Remember even after you finished welding the metal will still be very hot, because of this the fire watch must be maintained for at least a half an hour after welding operations have ended. Welding can be a powerful tool but we need to respect the dangers that it presents. Let's review;

  • Always check out your equipment before starting any welding job
  • Follow safe work practices, this way you'll avoid accidents
  • Always wear the appropriate protective clothing and equipment
  • Keep your area well ventilated =. Make sure the area you breath is safe and clean
  • Work to prevent fires, remove or shield any flammable objects in the welding area

Defeating the hazards that welding presents can be easy. All you have to do is follow the rules and work safely.
