Welding, Cutting & Brazing Safety Training Course (4 Hr.).
29 CFR 1910 Subpart Q — Welding, Cutting, and Brazing; ANSI Z49.1:2012 — Safety in Welding, Cutting & Allied Processes; and NFPA 51B — Standard for Fire Prevention During Welding, Cutting, and Other Hot Work.
This course covers the safety and health hazards associated with a broad range of topics, including safety equipment, ventilation, welding in confined spaces, safety precautions, and safety specifications.
OSHA states that management shall recognize its responsibility for the safe usage of cutting and welding equipment on its property and insist that cutters or welders and their supervisors are suitably trained in the safe operation of their equipment and the safe use of the processes. Employees exposed to the hazards created by welding, cutting, or brazing operations shall be protected by personal protective equipment in accordance with the requirements of 1910.132. Appropriate protective clothing required for any welding operation will vary with the size, nature and location of the work to be performed. Workmen in charge of the oxygen or fuel-gas supply equipment, including generators, and oxygen or fuel-gas distribution piping systems shall be instructed and judged competent by their employers for this important work before being left in charge. Hot work mishaps are responsible for thousands of injuries and millions of dollars in property damage every year. Any welding, soldering, cutting or brazing can cause burns, eye damage, and fires, virtually every industry is at risk. Arc welding is a safe occupation when sufficient measures are taken to protect the welder from potential hazards. When these measures are overlooked, welders can encounter such dangers as electric shock, overexposure to fumes and gases, arc radiation, and fire and explosion.
Course topics include:
• fire prevention and protection; • fire watches; • personnel protection equipment (PPE); • health protection and ventilation; • cylinders and containers; • safety precautions; • regulator & hose handling & storage; • common hazards associated with various types of hot work; • welding processes (SMAW, MIG,FCAW, TIG, etc.); • welding in conﬁned spaces; • respiratory protection, selection (mask, ﬁlters and cartridges); • hexavalent chromium standards (1910.1026 & 1910.1126)
