What are the Most Common Welding Injuries in the UK?
Most welding injuries involve burns. The extreme and powerful heat of a welding torch can cause serious and even permanent damage if it comes into contact with skin. Despite this, many welding injuries are fairly minor. A welder is more likely to suffer minor burns or injuries due to sparks bypassing ineffective health and safety equipment or PPE. However, if your skin does come into direct contact with a welder’s torch, we are here for you.
What are the Main Causes of Welding Injuries in the Workplace?
In most cases, welding injuries are caused by ineffective personal protective equipment or lax health and safety standards. It is also possible that someone untrained could be given access to a welding torch, which is always a serious health risk. Finally, it is also possible for a faulty welding torch or other equipment to directly cause an accident. If you’ve suffered an injury that wasn’t your fault through any of these methods, call Tylers Solicitors today!
