Welding accidents put construction workers at risk.
Although welding is one of the most highly regulated jobs in the construction industry, even experienced professionals are at risk for welding accidents. According to United States Department of Labor, welding, cutting and brazing pose health and safety risks to more than 500,000 workers in a variety of industries—including the construction industry.
Welding torches, tanks and other equipment can be dangerous, especially when equipment is defective or used improperly. Welders are exposed to very high temperatures and intense light, so there are significant risks for a number of injuries due to welding accidents.
