I'm a cert Welder also Tee......not like these guys but spent a year in School for it.....and yes their are a lot of Health Concerns from welding the 2 major problems is Fumes and UV Light ......fumes are very toxic and the light will fry you skin and more so your eyes....NEVER EVER look at anybody welding anything with out proper gear....you can end up blind.........

Mostly, I think H22 will agree, the rod is'nt so hazardous when it's lit. The material you are welding on can be an issue. Fumes are the main thing to avoid. Carbon steel is'nt as bad as stainless steel which is'nt as bad as chome, which is'nt as bad as (hope I spell this right) inconel. And the list goes on and on..... Been along time that I have not wore a full face respirator to weld the last two stated. When it's all said and done, it's what us welders do.....

Think I'll try electricity instead. I'm amazed by fire and may end up doing something a tad bit dangerous playing around.

Well its right on the MSDS, the rod is also very toxic especially 308 and 309 wire for stainless applications. It does contain hex-chrome. Whether im welding carbon tube in the boiler or miggin inconel in there I always have a respirator on. When im in the "dead air" (the cold side aka the outside of the boiler) I tend not too a few weeks into the job after all the fly ash has been super sucked out. I do alot of inconel welding in the boiler with a mig gun and I have been so **** sunburned I couldnt move my head, doin that for a couple weeks straight you tend to look like a lobster.

Tee, even if its 100 degrees in there I still wear everything possible to cover every inch of my skin. It can be hazardous but the company you work for provides you everything you need to get it done safely.

I prefer oxy/acetylene welding. I think its the only one I can do well. It just makes for a nicer looking weld.

My attempt to "try" to brake down welding in layman terms for Tee


Tee....here is a page that will give a General over view of basic welding (check the bottom of the page about burns to the eyes) Ive never met a welder that had welded as a profession over any amount of time who had good vision.

Now I am not talking about the type of welding the guys do at the nuke plants......from what I understand their are so many safety precautions its almost 100% safe


but if you get away from places like that say the local plant that puts production over safety, or the local welding shop, you will see guys who look like is...sucking up fumes and anywhere his skin is exposed he will end up with a VERY nasty blister or one heII of a sunburn, And over time "years"........ their skin turns like Saddle leather!



this is how powerful UV light can be and things like this can happen with in 10-15 mins on some people it Could be worse

Cant count the burns Ive had like the one on the bottom...Ive even been blistered thru T-shirts that were not thick enough to block out the UV Rays....lol



Welding Health Hazards


hope that kinda breaks it down bit into Simpler to understand layman's terms!

Enjoy
Glide

Good post, Glide...On the "brighter" side, it is cheaper than the tanning booth...
It's a job... Plants pay pretty good to get us out and weld on lots of cool stuff. The main rule is "dont touch the red button"..
