The American Welding Society presents Health and Safety in the Welding Environment.

This conference focuses on solutions to many of the health and safety issues facing the welding industry, including the control of radiation, ventilation, welder comfort and visibility, plasma cutting, and the light from lasers. These presentations were recorded at FABTECH, North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing event held in Las Vegas, Nevada in November of 2012. In an effort to make this valuable content available to a broader audience, AWS has made all of the program sessions available here free of charge.
