Lincoln Electric has launched a Welding Safety Interactive Guide that converts the company’s Welding Safety Interactive DVD into an online format that is viewable on computers, tablets and mobile phones.
Designed to educate arc welders about potential arc welding safety hazards and the safe practices they should follow, the guide offers information on a wide variety of topics, including how to avoid electric shock, prevent fire and explosions and choose appropriate personal protection equipment.
The guide also provides safety insights from the American Welding Society (AWS) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The program’s content is designed to be understood by welders at all experience levels, providing a valuable resource for everyone from welding students to professional welders out on the jobsite, according to company officials.
The DVD that inspired the new online guide recently received the 2012 André Leroy Prize from the International Institute of Welding (IIW). The prize is given annually to recognize an outstanding large-circulation, multimedia document (including videos and computer programs), intended for use in Education and Training in any aspect of welding and allied processes.
The new online guide is compatible with iPad, iPhone and Android technology. To access the Welding Safety Interactive Guide, go to LincolnElectric.com.
