Hot Work/Arc Welding: Types and Hazards of Hot Work (Microlearning)


Hot work is any work that produces fire or sparks, including welding, flame cutting, soldering, and brazing. Welding and other forms of hot work can pose a serious health hazard to workers, but training, safe practices and hazard controls can help workers keep themselves safe. This course should help employees identify types of hot work and their hazards. This course is intended for employees who perform hot work, including welding, brazing and torch cutting, as part of their regular work duties. While this course addresses OSHA training requirements, there may be a site-specific training component required that must be fulfilled by an employer. This course is available in English. This microlearning course addresses a specific aspect of a broader training topic. For a more complete training experience, see HTW-1.2.
