Hazards are Worsened When Safety is Ignored

Foremen of construction sites, supervisors, and controlling parent companies all have the duty and responsibility to protect workers and welcome visitors. When all safety protocols and guidelines are followed, welding accidents may be rare. If safety does not come first and proper procedures are not encouraged and enforced by management and higher-ups, welding accidents can become common. In some incidents, equipment and machines can fail due to a lack of maintenance, sparking up violently and causing severe slag burns.

Tools involved in welding accidents on construction sites may include:

  • Arc welders
  • Laser cutters
  • Torch welders
  • Gas masks (chemical exposure incidents)
