Throughout the US, in construction, manufacturing and welding industries, there are more than 80 different types of welding procedures used daily. Each type of the welding process carries a different risk or potential hazard for the employee and surrounding employees. It is essential that welders are made aware of the Welding Safety Equipment and Welding Cutting Safety regulations mandated by OSHA. These welding safety programs generally cover the Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) requirements, the types of welding operations, environment safety, and common injuries associated to welding. Our OSHA Welding safety video training products remind employees that there are indeed, a number of hazards associated with welding equipment , and provide the information he or she needs to work safely when involved with welding operations. Other topics covered in these products include: Getting "authorization" for welding operations, Sparking and the risk of fire, Guards and protective barriers, Hazardous fumes and ventilation, The use of respirators and other personal, Selecting and using the appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE), Inspecting welding equipment, Proper welding safety procedures, and more.
OSHA's Position On Welding Safety Training
In U.S. industries involving manufacturing, construction and welding you can find over 80 different types of welding procedures that are utilized on a daily basis. Each one of these procedures carries a different set of potential hazards/risks that involve both the welder and those near their work area. The American Bureau of Labor Statistics has estimated that there are 365,000 welding accidents each year and has recently reported 40 annual fatalities for welding, soldering and brazing workers, which translates into 8.8 deaths per applicable 100,000 full-time workers. OSHA has mandated specific requirements for industry welding procedures. The first and foremost item within these regulations involves the use of the appropriate protective equipment. Here, at Compliance and Safety, we offer a complete set of welding training materials that are designed to meet the entire set of mandatory OSHA directives. The topics that are covered include:
- The use of proper welding personal protective equipment (PPE) (OSHA 1915 Subpart I)
- General welding safety requirements (OSHA 1910.252(a)(1))
- Oxyfuel Gas Cutting
- Hot Work Permit requirements (OSHA 1910.146(b) & Definition VTO1298)
- Compressed gas cylinder safety requirements (OSHA 1910.101)
- And other topics
