Description: MARCOM's "Welding Safety" Employee Booklet reminds employees that there are indeed a number of hazards associated with Welding, and provides the information that they need to work safely when involved with Welding operations. People have been welding in one form or another for over 2,000 years. But like many industrial processes, Welding can be very dangerous. Whether an employee is working with the hazardous gases of an "Oxyacetylene" unit... the high voltage of "Stick Welding"... or the combination of gas and electricity that powers "MIG" and "TIG" operations... flying sparks, toxic fumes, electric shock and high temperatures are just some of the things that can make Welding a dangerous proposition. The Booklet includes information on getting "authorization" for welding operations, sparking and the risk of fire, guards and protective barriers, hazardous fumes and ventilation, the use of respirators, eye protection (welding helmets/filters/ glasses/goggles), using other personal protective equipment, inspecting welding equipment, proper welding safety procedures, and more. The Employee Booklet features text, illustrations and a Quiz, and is 16 pages in length. Booklets are available in packages of 15.
