Welding and cutting activities can generate gases that are hazardous to health. The gas or gases generated and their concentrations depend on the process used and the gas formation mechanisms. Gases, some of which may be hazardous, are inherent in some processes, either as a shielding gas to protect the molten weld pool against atmospheric. Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Only manual electrode holders which are specifically designed for arc welding and cutting, and are of a capacity capable of safely handling the maximum rated current required by the electrodes, shall be used. shall not be used as a ground return. For welding on natural gas pipelines, the.
Arc Welding Safety. Author(s): Fluegel, Lance; Rein, Bradley K. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (AOSHA) regulations and the National Electric Code (NEC) by a qualified electrician. When welding or cutting metals with hazardous coatings such as galvanized metal the operator should use a supplied-air type respirator or a. Society to provide an assessment of current knowledge of the effects of welding on health, as well as to aid in the formulation of a research program in this area, as part of an ongoing program sponsored by the Com-mittee. Previous work has included studies of fumes and gases, radiation, and noise generated during various forms of arc welding.
Purpose. Indiana University Environmental Health and Safety (IUEHS) developed this Program to provide occupational safety guidelines for welding, cutting and brazing (WCB) flame activities in order to comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations 29 CFR , , and Scope.

Safety Practices in Welding INTRODUCTION Arc welding is a safe occupation when sufficient measures are taken to protect the welder from potential hazards. When these measures are overlooked or ignored, however, welders can encounter such dangers as electric shock, overexposure to fumes and gases, arc radiation.
Welding hazards pose an unusual combination of safety and health risks. By its nature, welding produces fumes and noise, gives off radiation, involves electricity or gases, and has the potential for burns, shock, fire, and explosions.
Some hazards are common to both electric arc and oxygen-fuel gas welding. If you work with or near a welding operation, the following general precautions should. Gas Metal Arc Welding.
