Welders face a number of occupational hazards on a daily basis. They are routinely exposed to flames, hot or sparking arcs, flying debris, and slag vapor.

Approximately 1,000 welders suffer injury for every 100 million work hours. This is much higher than the average injury rate for other workers. Welding safety hazards include:

  • Fire and explosions

  • Physical hazards, including cuts, crushing, and burns
