Length: 1 Hours

Target Audience
Beginner Level

Electrical Safety for Welding introduces users to the electrical hazards of arc welding and methods of reducing them. Arc welding requires a live electrical circuit, which presents several potential safety hazards. Electricity can cause burns, fires, and electric shock. There are two types of electric shock: primary voltage shock and secondary voltage shock. To prevent the risks associated with electricity, welders must make sure equipment is properly installed, grounded, and maintained. Welders must also use the necessary PPE and insulation to prevent injury.After taking this class, users will have a good understanding of the major safety hazards associated with electricity and precautions that minimize these risks. This knowledge allows users to work more safely and effectively with electrical equipment, which is required for all arc welding processes.
