Welding is one among the most simplest and dangerous activities one could ever undertake. Theoretically speaking, welding is nothing but the act of joining metal pieces with the help of a molten solution that solidifies and forms the bond between the pieces upon cooling. The process is predominantly used in heavy manufacturing sites where raw materials such as iron, steel, aluminum, stainless steel and many more are used for the production of metal components or products. 

Practically speaking, it is one among the most complicated tasks one could ever undertake. It requires immense concentration and precision for creating sturdy joints. The quality of the end product or the product being manufactured depends upon the sturdiness of the weld you create. Every welder is immensely experienced in producing welds and they know the importance of quality welds more than anyone else. Welding as such is an art which could be performed efficiently after immense practice sessions and experience gained from it. So as a beginner it is very important that you equip yourself sufficiently, in terms of both theoretical and practical aspects before applying for welding jobs.

As mentioned above, welding is one among the most dangerous tasks anyone is bound to undertake. Irrespective of one's experience in the welding industry, one must never be negligent of safety parameters. It is in fact one's responsibility to attend to safety requirements while performing welding activities. Immense care must be taken and one simply cannot be ignorant about the same, especially while making use of TIG welder as well as MIG welder. These welders make use of electrodes that melts to create the molten hot solution that is necessary for forming the bond between the metal pieces. And if you are not dressed appropriately with safety apparels and when shreds of hot liquid is bound to fall on your bare skin, you are bound to get burns whose intensity or degree might vary depending upon the concentration of the liquid that fell on your skin. Hence, see to that, your whole body is covered sufficiently with the right apparel that is meant for welding activities. Secondly, people have even gone blind while performing welding owing to the intense light and sparks that are scattered. It is important that you make use of welding goggles as well as helmet to safeguard your eyesight.

Some of the welding procedures are highly risky, especially when you are welding inside enclosed surfaces such as tanks that once carried flammable substances. You have to be highly careful while welding such tanks as a single gas leak is more than enough for explosion and you will die instantly. There are certain set of do's and don'ts especially while undertaking such dangerous welding tasks which you ought to follow by all means without fail. Your life is at stake and though the job sounds so simple and easy it is one among the risky activities you are ever bound to be performing. Care must be taken while using plasma cutters for plasma cutting as you can injure yourself badly. It is highly imperative for one to give higher priority for safety parameters especially while performing welding activities. Remember that prevention is better than cure and the consequences of such negligence aren't predictable.
