Welding Safety Checklist

BENEFITS

The OHS laws requires you to take reasonable steps to protect workers who engage in “hot work,” such as welding, cutting and allied processes, as well as others who work around them. For example, you must ensure such workers use proper PPE.

HOW TO USE THE TOOL

Adapt this checklist for the hot work requirements in your jurisdiction’s OHS laws and any incorporated CSA standards, such as W117.2, Safety in Welding, Cutting and Allied Processes, and use it to audit your welding safety procedures to ensure that they comply with these requirements and adequately protect all workers.
