Welding Safety Tips Knowing how to weld can be quite a valuable skill to learn. As with most specialty skills, welding has certain safety precautions that everyone who welds should be fully aware of before ever touching torch/gun. www.thedetaildevils.com.au © Copyright 2013 The Detail Devils ®
The Basics www.thedetaildevils.com.au • Never weld without a face shield. This is the number one rule of welding. • Closed shoes must be worn. • A long sleeved, flame retardant shirt must be worn. • Always wear ear protection. • Never weld on - or near - anything which has been cleaned with a chlorinated hydrocarbon, like brake cleaner. When combined with UV light, it can create phosgene gas which can kill you and the people around you. © Copyright 2013 The Detail Devils ®
Fire www.thedetaildevils.com.au • Before welding, be sure your surroundings are free from flammable items such as paper and flammable liquids. • Never wear gloves that have been exposed to flammable materials while welding. © Copyright 2013 The Detail Devils ®
Electrocution www.thedetaildevils.com.au • Be sure the floor around your work area is free of puddles of water, especially around the weld bench and the machine. • Be sure the weld machine is dry, including the main box, the torch, the pedal, and the plugs. • When done correctly, there is little chance of electrocution from a properly functioning machine. © Copyright 2013 The Detail Devils ®
Burns www.thedetaildevils.com.au • Welded metal will remain hot for several minutes after being welded. Always use caution when handling the pieces. • If you do happen to burn yourself, immediately rinse with cold water. Seconds count! © Copyright 2013 The Detail Devils ®
Gas tanks www.thedetaildevils.com.au • Argon and CO2 are gasses found naturally in our atmosphere and are not inherently dangerous. However, if left leaking in an enclosed space they can cause suffocation by displacing the breathable air. • Tanks should always be stored upright and secured with a non flammable brace. © Copyright 2013 The Detail Devils ®
