Publication Date 1977
Page Count 8
Abstract Certain hazards are common to most arc welding processes. Principally, these are damage to eyes and skin from infrared and ultraviolet radiation, from the molten metal and electric arc respectively, burns from contact with hot metal or sparks, adverse health effects from breathing metal fumes and gases, accidents from materials handling, and electrical shock. Interest has centered around the health and safety hazards of arc welding. With proper environmental controls and work procedures, the hazards may be eliminated.
