Video Transcript

You should be familiar with the equipment you will be using and the proper way to use and maintain it. Many instructions and the operating procedures provide information on equipment safety. Read the information and asks your supervisor whenever you have questions or concerns. When planning any job inspect the equipment for leaks, damage, faulty valves or regulator problems before you begin work. Never overload a circuit, each welding box should have a circuit of its own because of the power it demands. Never override breakers, fuses, guards, automatic shut offs or other safety features.
