We offer hands-on demonstrations and training to your welding employees. This is guaranteed to make them more efficient on your shop production floor. Our Certified Welding Educator (CWE) will not only teach hands-on techniques to achieving a code acceptable weldment, but also trains on how to read and interpret WPS's (Welding Procedure Specifications) , and offers a welder safety improvements.
Fact! -The majority of welding shops that I have encountered in my career of Sixteen years, do not understand the full complexity of how dangerous the environment in a welding shop can be. For example, any hydrochlorides (degreasers, cleaning solutions, or just plain old Clorox) within 200ft of the UV rays from arc welding, changes their chemical composition, thus turning the hydrochlorides into Phosgene ......a deadly gas! This colorless gas gained infamy as a chemical weapon in WWI.
This highlights just one of the gamut of dangers in a welding shop, unforeseen to the naked eye. Training examples: proper handing and operation of acetylene and oxygen cylinders, PPE (personal and protective equipment, such as proper gloves, sleeves, filters and welding hood, low flammable clothing, eye protection), electrical shock hazards, head position and adequate ventilation, the dangers of chromium's, nickels and stainless alloys and the vapors such as Hexavalent Chromium.
