Types of Welding Accidents
Welding involves binding two pieces of metal together through the use of heat. Heat melts and liquefies the metal so that pieces can be joined by the worker who is applying great pressure or heat. Welding burns can result in catastrophic injuries and can be fatal. Welders also can suffer serious burns or other damage that can lead to amputation. Some of the issues that can take place over time as a result of welding include:
- Exposure to ultraviolet radiation
- Exposure to infrared radiation
- Exposure to intense visible light
