Welding – Understanding the hazards and new generation of personal protective equipment


September 8

Welding – know your hazards

Welding is an inherently dangerous task with the potential to leave people with life changing injuries and long-term health conditions. Most people are aware of the more obvious hazards such as excessive amounts of heat and damaging UV light. However, respiratory hazards are too frequently forgotten because they’re often invisible and their effects take longer to become apparent.

In this webinar, we’ll explore the hazards from welding and grinding, the importance of comfort and ease of use, and how innovation is meeting user demands to address some of the common issues surrounding hazards for welders:

  • Basic welding and grinding hazards and who can be exposed to them
  • Health impacts of weld fume
  • Users of welding PPE and their needs
  • Controlling the hazard with the latest generation of welding PPE
