While welding may seem dangerous to many (and in some cases it can be), it’s important to understand that modern safety and worker protection standards exist to protect welders from such foreseeable occupational injuries. Unfortunately, accidents still happen. Negligence on the work site (by the employer, supervisor, etc) can leave workers burned, seriously injured, or even killed. In fact, it’s estimated that there are more than 500,000 welding injuries on a year-to-year basis.

It’s important to note that OSHA usually provides safety guidelines that all employers need to adhere to in order to make a welder’s workplace as safe and as secure as possible.
- Wearing protective clothing is vital since this will protect your skin from burns as well as the UV radiation produced during welding. This usually includes a jumpsuit that covers your whole body.
- Wearing protective eye gear is necessary to protect your eyes from things like cataracts, corneal abrasions and loss of eyesight. Goggles and shields are two things that are non-negotiable in these kinds of situations.
- Welding usually produces harmful glasses. Because of this, it is the responsibility of your employer to ensure that you work in a well-ventilated area.
Additionally, if your injuries were caused by defective or faulty equipment, you may need to file a product liability claim against the manufacturer.
