Welding Jackets - Accessories
Welding jackets and accessories that help protect workers from arc flashes and sparks are available at ASA, LLC. Welders have to be comfortable and properly protected when working with welding equipment such as torches and other tools. When used in combination with other safety products and using a ventilation guide for weld fumes, workers can be safe and your company can be compliant to safety regulations in ANSI Z49.12012 for safety in welding, cutting, and related processes in robotic arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, and friction welding. In brief, Z49.1 states that clothing shall provide sufficient coverage, and be made of suitable materials, to minimize skin burns caused by sparks, spatter, or radiation. Shop management is a critical part of a safe job. Industrial hygienists, supervisors, managers should always address safe practices for performing welding, cutting, and other allied processes in the welding environment.
