Welding, Brazing and Smoldering Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
Welding is a method of melting materials to form of molten and joining materials, usually metals or thermoplastics.
How does it work?
The molten material (the weld pool) that cools becomes a strong joint sometimes used in conjunction with heat, or by itself, to produce the weld. Soldering and brazing are different methods that involve melting a lower-melting-point material between the work pieces to form a bond between them, without melting the work pieces. Working with hot molten is potentially dangerous and can result in devastating injuries that include eye and skin damage, inhalation of fumes, electrocution and burns. Bystanders can also sustain significant injury if they are not wearing adequate protection or if suitable protective screens are not in place. Explosion and fire are potential hazards that can affect anyone in the vicinity. As stated in the Welding, Brazing, and Smoldering Toolbox Talk (UK) app, the law specifically states that a risk assessment and safe system of work should always be in place, protective equipment should be worn, and the list of potential hazards that should be avoided.
