Welding - News Page 3

In order to complete a successful welding task, ensuring the safety of workers and managers on the worksite is a key component in the ever-changing welding industry.
Welding pic Welding processes are usually classified into two groups: fusion welding, which is heat alone, and pressure welding, which uses a combination of heat and pressure. Fusion welding involves three types: electric arc, gas and thermit.
Arc welding is a safe occupation when sufficient measures are taken to protect the welder from potential hazards. When these measures are overlooked, welders can encounter such dangers as electric shock, overexposure to fumes and gases, arc radiation, and fire and explosion.
The TIG process produces a variety of hazards, not only to those carrying out the operation but also in many instances to others in the vicinity such as inspectors, labourers and even other welders. Some of the hazards encountered are specific to TIG welding while others are of a more general nature.

What are some of the hazards in Welding?

Different hazards occur before welding commences, during welding and sometimes after welding has finished.
These potential hazards need to be identified, measured where appropriate, assessed, and remedial or preventative measures put in place wherever necessary. It should also be remembered that different hazards may have the same effect on the body and so interactions between hazards should also be considered.
