Oct. 30, 2012 — Lincoln Electric Company announced the launch of its new Welding Safety Interactive Guide to provide welders of all skill levels access to safety information anywhere, anytime.
The guide converted Lincoln Electric’s award-winning Welding Safety Interactive DVD into an online format that is easily accessible and viewable on computers, tablets and mobile phones.
“Lincoln Electric is proud to be the first welding equipment provider to offer an intuitive, informative and concisely packaged online welding safety guide,” John Petkovsek, director of environmental health and safety at Lincoln Electric, said in a statement. “We’re excited to deliver a mobile-ready platform on the best welding safety practices for the welder, and present critical safety insights for everyone from weekend project warriors to professional welders in fabrication or construction.”
The guide offers information on a wide variety of topics, including how to avoid electric shock, prevent fire and explosions, and choose appropriate personal protection equipment. The guide also provides safety insights from the American Welding Society (AWS) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
The program’s content is designed to be understood by welders at all experience levels, providing a valuable resource for everyone from welding students to professional welders out on the jobsite.
