Abstract

Arc welding becomes a safe procedure when adequate safety precautions are considered and followed to protect the workers from harmful hazards. When such safety measures are neglected, the workers come across potential hazards such as exposure to gases and fumes, arc radiation, electric shock and fire accidents, which could be serious and fatal.
