Safety Equipment for Welders
Welding and cutting work presents a range of both well known and less obvious hazards to health and safety. These can act quickly (e.g. electric shock, burns) or may show up only in the long term, (e.g. particulate damage to lungs). They can be rapidly fatal (e.g. suffocation by inert gas or exposure to cadmium fumes) or have delayed effects such as cancer.
Invest in the best welding safety gear which is fully compliant with regulatory standards and ensure it is used correctly.
Unfortunately, shortcuts, cheap gear and a “she’ll be right” attitude all lead to injuries, sometimes fatal, which could have been prevented with the appropriate choice of welding materials and welding safety equipment.
Welding Engineers NZ Ltd stocks a range of personal protective gear which is compliant with regulatory standards and can also assist with the correct choice of materials to minimise hazards, such as low fuming wires.
