Welding is a highly specialized field which is vital to the construction industry. Unfortunately, the activity can be inherently dangerous. According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), one out of every two hundred and fifty construction workers is killed on the job due to a welding accident.

Three Types of Welding

  • gas
  • arc
  • oxygen & arc cutting

Welding is dangerous because it involves volatile gases and fuel at extremely high temperatures. Metal beams and rods are joined together via welding to create the frame and interior of a new building under construction. Extreme heat and injury must be generated to bond one piece of metal to another.

Welding involves very hot gases, electricity, and sparks to join metal together. Molten materials are dangerous and may lead to serious injury if safety precautions are not taken and these materials are not handled properly.

Common Welding Accidents:

  • Metal shards fly off the objects being welded and can cause injuries if protective clothing and eyewear is not being worn
  • Danger of fire
  • Electrical injury or shock
  • Explosions
  • Harmful chemicals and gases released during welding
  • Burns Accidents resulting from extreme heat
  • Fire due to sparks, gasoline, or other flammable chemicals
  • Not having sufficient work space between construction workers
  • Welders working overtime, fatigued, and with not enough breaks to work safely
