MARCOM's Welding Safety DVD Program discusses the hazards that are associated with welding and cutting tasks, and explains the equipment and safe practices employees can use to avoid them.
More than half a million U.S. workers in various industries perform welding, cutting, brazing and soldering work as part of their jobs every day. In a year's time, these tasks will kill more than fifty of them. Thousands more will be injured. Some of their workplaces will have been damaged by fires and explosions as well.
The DVD program and booklet include:
- information on the potential hazards of welding
- designated areas
- work permits and confined spaces
- preventing fires while welding
- protecting against toxic fumes
- goggles, helmets and hand shields
- gloves, clothing and other protective equipment, and more
The DVD program in the kit comes with a comprehensive leader's guide, reproducible scheduling & attendance form, employee quiz, training certificate and training log.
