Welding Safety Manual

THIS BOOKLET was produced by the New Zealand Department of
Labour as part of its continuing drive to reduce the incidence and
severity of industrial accidents.
It is not a technical guide or a recommendation to use particular
brands of clothing or equipment.
It is a guide to safe work methods and practices wherever welding
and gas-cutting are performed in the industrial environment. It should be
closely studied by employers and workers, tradespeople, apprentices, and
anyone who has to use welding or gas-cutting equipment in a factory or
workshop, on a building site, or in any other workplace.
It is the responsibility of employers to ensure that all operators are
adequately trained, and that they know, understand and use the correct
operating techniques.
Equally, it is the responsibility of every operator to use only the
correct operating techniques.
Information in this booklet conforms with NZS 4781:1973 Code of
practice for safety in welding and cutting. As this booklet is a general
guide, the code of practice should be referred to when more specific
information is required on any point.

Please note that the advice I am giving is only my opinion and not necessarily a fact.  Please refer to our terms and conditions.
