Because welding is such an integral part of the construction trade, welders and construction workers, such as carpenters, pipefitters and others, are exposed to the risk of welding accidents. Welding uses many different technologies, but whether it is MIG, TIG, stick or oxy-acetylene, the one thing these styles of welding have in common is the presence of high heat that can create very serious injury.
Injuries caused by welding accidents can include:
- Ultraviolet (UV) radiation burns
- Injuries from explosions
- Eye injuries
- Damage to the lungs from toxic fume inhalation
Burns can be debilitating. The reality is that recovery for a burn victim can be a long and difficult process. Highly specialized medical care is often necessary. Scarring can be an issue, as can other long-term health issues such as increased susceptibility to infection and need for multiple skin grafts.
