Injuries from Welding Accidents
Due to the extreme heat that is needed in welding, injuries caused by welding accidents are frequently severe and disfiguring burns. The most common injuries from a welding accident are eye injuries and account for one-quarter of all welding injuries. All welders are required to wear protective gear including eye protection, but even with these precautions, flying particles can still enter the eyes and cause permanent vision damage. Also, the most common types of welding (including shielded metal-arc or stick welding, gas metal-arc welding, and oxyacetylene welding) produce potentially harmful ultraviolet, infrared, and visible spectrum radiation. Damage from this kind of light can occur very quickly and when it is absorbed into the cornea and lens of the eye, it can cause something known as "arc eye" or "arc flash," which is a very painful injury that is characterized by eye swelling, tearing, and excruciating pain.
