Choosing a welding set?


Make sure you can handle it This leaflet is aimed at employers of people who use welding equipment, but will also be useful to suppliers of welding sets.

Health and Safety Executive

Safe management of industrial steam and hot water boilers

Introduction
This leaflet is aimed at employers, although suppliers of welding sets will also find it useful. It gives advice on identifying, managing and controling the risks to your employees caused by handling welding equipment. At the end of the leaflet there is an illustrated checklist to help you make the right choice when you select welding equipment. Welding sets are becoming smaller and lighter. But if you need to regularly move the set by hand, you may need to include this task as part of your general handling risk assessment.

A guide for owners, managers and supervisors of boilers, boiler houses and boiler plant

Safe management of industrial steam and hot water boilers


This leaflet provides basic advice on the risks and regulatory requirements for the operation of steam boilers. It sets out the general principles of boiler safety for people with limited technical knowledge of boilers, such as owners, managers and supervisors. INDG436 978 0 7176 6388 0
www.hse.gov.uk/books

This is leaflet INDG390(rev2), revised 02/12

The risks
Manual welding can be a demanding and difficult job. It can involve precision work, with the welders body being in a fixed or awkward posture, often in a confined environment. Welders also have to handle heavy materials and equipment. All these factors may increase the risk of workers developing musculoskeletal disorders, such as back problems, or even upper limb pain in the neck and shoulders. A study found that 51% of welders suffered at least one period of sickness over a two-year period, taking time off work because of muscle, joint and tendon disorders.

Selecting equipment
When selecting work equipment, the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 require you to consider the risks to the health and safety of people using that equipment. This includes manual handling risks. Selecting the right welding set may help avoid:

personal suffering caused by injuries or ill health from musculoskeletal disorders; the financial burden of sickness absence and increased insurance premiums; reduced productivity; and welders being unable to come back to this type of work, which could affect their future earnings.

Reducing injuries and ill health caused by handling welding equipment will benefit people working in this sector.

Legal titles
All the titles in this series contain the actual Regulations themselves. They will be either Approved Codes of Practice (ACOPs) or Guidance on Regulations. The series includes 'L' titles as well as the older COP (Code of Practice) and HSR (Guidance on Regulations) titles. They are mainly aimed at a technical, specialist or legal audience but safety managers in larger organisations could also find them useful. These books can be downloaded from www.hse.gov.uk or ordered from HSE Books.
