There’s a great deal of information on the internet about welding processes and safety precautions. Elgas and BOC both have quite informative websites and there are some publications that are also helpful for welding safety:
- Safety in Welding and Allied Processes Fire Precautions
- Welding Guide – DuraGal – A good guide
- Welding Hazards and Risk Management – BOC Canada
- Welding Processes by BOC-GMAW-FCAW-MCAW Welding
I have a copy here of an old ‘standard’ for Welding. I don’t buy ‘Standards’ from SAI Global because we shouldn’t have to pay for them, regulations should be available to all for free.
This is the Code of Practice for Welding which I use as a guide instead of the Standard.
For those trying to understand welding processes, I find this website really helpful.
