The potential hazards associated with welding, cutting, and brazing make personal protective equipment (PPE) essential. A range of hazards can occur, such as exposure to metal fumes and UV radiation, burns, shocks, cuts, and fractured toes. Wearing protective head-to-toe clothing and using welding safety gear are the best ways to keep welders safe.
You can trust Premier Safety to provide you with a wide range of welding protective equipment, including gloves, helmets, helmet accessories, sleeves, and FR clothing, to ensure your workers' safety.
Any welder's personal protective equipment should include welding gloves, and for good reason, since their hands are closer to the actual welding action than any other part of their body. Welders work with sever heat that can melt metals. This level of heat can cause injuries and burns if it connects with the skin.
Furthermore, welding gloves protect workers' hands from cuts, abrasions, blunt force, and other hazards caused by working with heavy machinery. Welders should also wear gloves that are insulated to protect them from cold and moisture during the seasons.
Considering how difficult the job is on your hands, welding gloves designed to absorb sweat will reduce the stress, wear, and tear on your hands as you handle gear, materials, and products. The hard work you put into your hands shouldn't leave them raw and ragged at the end of the day.
Welding Helmets & Accessories
The welding helmet, officially called a "hood," is one of the most important pieces of personal protection equipment for welders. In addition to protecting the eyes and skin from severe sparks, an adequate helmet also shields the eyes from harmful ultraviolet and infrared rays.
A strong UV radiation source can cause retinal burning or cataracts as a result of eye injuries. Besides protecting the eyes, a proper hood protects the head from sparks, excess heat, and flying fragments
Protecting the arms from sparks is very important when it comes to welding. Sparks and flames may fall on the skin during welding, so welding sleeves helps protect the arms. The materials used to make welding sleeves are typically heat- and spark-resistant like leather, treated fabrics, or other materials that are non-flammable and provide protection against these hazards.
Clothing that is flame-resistant (FR) is an essential part of the job. An FR garment made of high-quality material provides protection against burns caused by flash fires, electric arcs, and combustible dust. Many industries are able to take on potentially dangerous tasks with the help of this technology.
