Dust particles become airborne during indoor metalworking processes like welding and plasma cutting. They also become airborne during the manufacturing and processing of food, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and other dry products.
The act of joining together two different pieces of metal is nothing new. Over the past few centuries, however, new industrial techniques have yielded a variety of different types of welding that can create stronger bonds and expand the kinds of material that can be joined together.
Welding and welding safety are nothing new to us all. In fact, welding of different types has been around since the 1800’s. While welding equipment today has dramatically improved, has respiratory protection for welders improved to the same degree?
Choosing a career path is never easy, so during the last year we’ve been breaking down all of the options the welding industry has to offer to help you determine what path is right for you. This month we’ve looked at the responsibilities required of a Certified Welding Supervisor.
