Welding is one of the most commonly used methods of joining metals at the industrial level, and one of the reasons for this is that it is one of the most economical, if not the most economical.
But there are undoubtedly a series of risks that arise directly from welding work, which we must learn to identify in order to prevent them with the necessary tools.

It is quite common that one of the risks is exposure to heat and flame since it can suffer from fire burns or different contact heats and splashes.
We must also take care of the UV radiation emitted by the arc in the event that the type of welding applies, being quite dangerous for the retina if the exposure of the vision to it is prolonged.
Finally, we cannot forget the risk of mechanical aggressions that are related to the different jobs that involve the handling of tools.
That is why we will need a green glass protective screen to avoid irreversible damage that can occur from the light, ultraviolet, and infrared radiation generated in the electric arc.
Another essential product is protective gloves when performing any type of welding task, which are usually made of materials such as padded leather and reinforced seams that help avoid accidents with other objects.
Welding work clothes, especially cotton with fibers resistant to thermal aggressions, allow us to stay comfortable and safe at the same time within the workspace.
In addition, there are a number of convenient accessories to be safe when welding, such as green glass protective glasses.
