This Welding Health and Safety training course is suitable for anyone who uses welding and cutting operations in their work, specifically metal-to-metal welding activities, such as gas, electric, arc, MIG and TIG welding.
The course is well-suited for managers, supervisors, and team leaders who are responsible for carrying out a risk assessment, but the level of information covered is appropriate for workers at all levels.
On successful completion of the course you will be sent a quality assured certificate through the post the next working day. This can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit.
All of our courses are accredited by the CPD Certification Service as conforming to universally accepted Continuing Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.

This course contains four accessible, interactive modules and includes an assessment at the end:
||Introduction to Welding Health and Safety
||Definitions, gas welding and cutting, electric arc welding, health and safety hazards, health and safety legislation for welding and cutting operations, legal enforcement, HSE Safety Alert February 2019, and employee duties.
||What is a risk assessment?, who should carry out a risk assessment?, identify the hazards, decide who might be harmed and how, evaluate the risks, evaluate existing controls, the hierarchy of control, HSE guidance, record your findings and implement them, and review and update.
||Health Risks and Controls During Welding and Cutting
||Controlling welding fume exposure, HSE Safety Alert, engineering controls and RPE, local exhaust ventilation (LEV), positioning an LEV hood, selection and use of RPE, checking and maintaining LEV and RPE, noise exposure, vibration exposure, manual handling, and health surveillance.
||Safety Risks and Controls During Welding and Cutting
||Fire and smoke risks, hot work on tanks and drums, permit to work, compressed gasses, welding in confined spaces, electrical hazards, environmental hazards, safe use and maintenance of welding equipment, welding checks, slips, trips and falls, eye protection, training, communication and housekeeping, and emergency procedures.
The online assessment is taken on completion of the training material. You will be asked 20 multiple choice questions with a pass mark of 80%.
