The welding industry utilizes many different — and potentially hazardous — energy sources, including gas flame, electric arc, laser, friction and ultrasound. In addition to these hazards, workers are exposed to molten-metal splatter, which can burn holes through, and even ignite, clothing that is not flame resistant.
Basic protective clothing requirements for the welding industry are covered in the ANSI Z49.1 standard, “Safety in Welding, Cutting and Allied Processes.” For more information on the role of FR clothing in welding safety, visit Workrite Uniform Company’s FR Information website.
