Welding operations checklist

Because of the inherent risks associated with welding, it’s vital that you manage the task safely. To ensure that you’re getting it right, use our new Welding Operations Checklist.


Important to get right

With welding, there’s no room for movement when it comes to following safe systems of work. Get it wrong and you could cause a fire and explosion, suffer serious burns and lacerations and damage your eyesight. So to ensure that your staff are completing the task safely, use our Welding Operations Checklist. It breaks the task down into its component parts and asks numerous questions about the control measures members of staff are following.

Note. If you answer “no” to any of the questions on the document, you need to decide whether following the control measure is necessary in your premises.
