Dos & Donts in Arc Welding

Donts

Dos

Provide isolation switch closer to the


work place, so that isolation is
possible in case of emergency.

Welding m/c to be effectively earthed


by double earthing.

Keep the power terminal box in the


m/c always protected by the cover.

Provide exclusive cables for return


current from the work to the welding
machine.

Dont leave the welding m/c unattended


with the current switched on.

Dont allow the electrode holder to come in


contact with metallic object when not in
use.

Dont use structural members and


reinforcement rods to transmit return
current.

Dont keep the cables in


walkways/platforms, which may lead to
trip hazard.

Connect the cables in welding m/c


with the help of lugs.

Dont use damaged gloves and spattered


face shield.

Wear all PPE (Helmet, face shield,


Leather gloves, shoes)

Dont insert electrodes in the holder with


bare hands. Use insulating gloves.

Provide adequate ventilation while


working in closed/ confined area.
Before starting welding in closed or
jacketed containers, other hollow
parts such as ducts, the parts shall be
adequately vented.

Dont do any welding operation near and


inside places where combustible materials,
explosive & flammable substances are
likely to present unless adequate
precautions are taken.

When arc welding is done in damp


confined spaces, keep the welding
machine out side the confined space.

Dont permit any personnel to perform


welding/cutting activity in confined spaces
all alone.

Keep a container handy for collecting


the welding stubs.

Welding stubs shall not be thrown on the


floor.

Keep acytelene cylinders always in vertical


position.

Dont use magnet or chain sling to


lift the cylinders. Dont use nozzle

for handling purposes.

Use suitable trolley with a chain or belt to


transport cylinder within work area.Use
suitable carrier/cage for lifting cylinders by
crane.

Use only frictional spark lighter to light the


torch.

Leave key wrenches on cylinders in use, so


they can be closed quickly.

Wear all PPE( Helmet, Cutting goggles,


Leather gloves and shoes).

Dont use matches or welding arc to


light a torch.

Dont leave the cylinders with out


shutting of the gas supply.

Dont wear plain goggles for cutting.

Dont use copper fittings in

Acytelene line.

Provide flash back arrestor with regulator


to prevent back fire.

Dont change colour of cylinders,


colour of hoses and dont interchange
hoses.

Dont lubricate oxygen cylinder


fittings ,valves with oil, grease.

Dont store cylinders near by


flammable, explosive & corrosive
substances.

Dont use cylinders as rollers, work

Arrange hoses properly to avoid tripping


hazard.

Ensure the tip of the torch is free from dirt


and metal.

Check leaks around regulators, hoses,


fittings with soap solution.

Move any leaking cylinder immediately to


a safer location.
supports or jack at any time.

Shield cylinders from direct sunlight or


other heat radiation to avoid buildup of
excess internal pressure.

Dont roll/drag the cylinders. Dont drop


the cylinders from height.

Dont use extra force or increase


leverage of keys by long leverage
keys.
