Welding Risks & Safety
Welding is one of the most usual tasks that professional welders are already aware of the chance of getting shocked due to electricity under certain conditions. Electric welding machines produce high voltages and if used improperly or if there’s water present at the site, electrocution may happen. There are a bunch of safety measures that can be applied to ensure the safety of the welder and other people in the work site.
First of all, checking the setup of the welding machine can help prevent the problem. You can make sure that it is not sitting on water and don’t put it somewhere with damp ground. It will also help if the machine is situated in a place that’s out of the sprinklers’ range. Furthermore, make sure that there is no water dropping from above.
Another safety measure one can take is by making sure to never touch the welding electrode that’s attached to the machine. Make sure that it also doesn’t touch any part of your body. It also would be helpful if you unplug the welding machine when replacing the welding electrode.
Deadman Switches as Additional Safety Measure
Lastly, it wouldn’t hurt to elevate the safety by adding a Deadman switch to the welding machine. Our 300A Welding Deadman Switches and our 600A Welding Deadman Switch are designed specifically to additional protection to welders as it is designed to quickly cut off the supply with a simple press of the button.
