Welding Safety Checklist

Use this checklist before beginning a welding task. Start by describing the work and taking a photo of the worksite. Indicate if the worker has undergone proper training, understands the task, and wears the proper PPE. After that, assess if the equipment is in good working condition and the workplace is ventilated, free from flammable substances, items, and obstructions. Determine whether or not the instructions were followed throughout the welding process. Complete the report by suggesting any recommendations and finish by giving an overall safety rating.
