Welding and cutting are processes used in manufacturing to join and separate pieces of metal by heating them to their melting point. These processes are also commonly used in construction, demolition, maintenance, and repair work.
This 3-hour interactive online course is the first of a two-part series that covers the important safety facts and practices involving the high-pressure and low-pressure gases used in welding. You’ll learn general welding safety as well as specific safety practices. You’ll also learn about controlling heat sources from welding operations to protect yourself from harm and your facility from fire. Specifically, this course looks at:
Safety in welding and cutting
Safe handling and storage of gas cylinders
Use of Oxy-fuel welding and cutting systems
