Welding Injuries

 

One of the most necessary and dangerous pieces of equipment on a construction site is the welding torch, along

with its acetylene tank. Welding is the joining of metals by using extreme heat/pressure and is used any time something is manufactured from metal. The frequency of use is one of the dangerous features of welding. Even when safety precautions are taken, there can still be health problems caused by prolonged exposure to welding. UV burns and a condition called “arc eye” are the most common of these. The most experienced welders can still be at risk from equipment or material failures. With so much potential danger in the industry, it’s no wonder that over 500,000 injuries are caused by welding accidents each year in the US.
