Welding safety checklists are tools used to ensure the safety of workers throughout the entire welding cutting and brazing process. Welding checklists can help ensure compliance with wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and be used for welding equipment and machinery inspections. They can also be used when performing site walkthroughs which can include checking of ventilation systems and flammable materials on site.
Use this checklist before commencing welding tasks. Start by taking a photo of the work area and check if the operator has undergone proper training, understands instructions, and wears appropriate PPE. Next, evaluate if equipment is in good working condition and the working area is ventilated and free from flammables and obstructions. Inspect if procedures were followed during and after work. End the report by by providing recommendations and an overall safety rating.
