All welding operations come with a list of hazards associated with the task.  Many of these operations produce flying debris, intense heat and sparks - which may potentially result in facial injuries and burns.  

To combat the chances of getting seriously injured, the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) should be worn.  Proper PPE includes:

  • Long sleeves to cover the arms,
  • Face shields to protect the eyes and the face, and
  • Gloves to protect the hands.
