Welding operations can be used in every type of industry.  Welders should be qualified to do the work assigned to them.  Part of their education should include welding safety.  I will discuss the physical hazards of welding and how to protect you from these hazards.  If you are a welder, or work near a welding operation, you could encounter any or all of these hazards.

 Any of these hazards can cause an injury, so it is important you know how to protect yourself.  Follow company rules consistently for using PPE to prevent hearing loss and UV burns.  Correct any situations that pose a threat of fire or electrical shock hazards. If a safety concern should arise , report it to your supervisor or your safety professional immediately.
