All the welding safety equipment you can get at James Oxygen & Supply is great, but you need to know and follow best practices when it comes to welding safely.

  • Keep all combustibles a safe distance away from where welding is being done.
  • Read the operating manuals and be sure you know how to use your welding equipment.
  • Wear flame-resistant clothing and make sure no skin is uncovered while you’re welding.
  • Don’t forget to protect your feet: Wear leather high-top boots or shoes, and make sure your pants go over the tops of your boots.
  • Check that the area where you’re welding has adequate ventilation.
  • Have fire extinguishers handy so they can be used right away if needed.
  • When you’ve finished your welding job, take time to turn off all the equipment, store it properly, dispose of any waste, such as scraps or electrode butts, and check twice to ensure that all gas valves are closed.
