What are welding safety checklists?
Welding safety checklists are tools used to ensure the safety of workers throughout the entire welding cutting and brazing process. Welding checklists can help ensure compliance with wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and be used for welding equipment and machinery inspections.
They can also be used when performing site walkthroughs which can include checking of ventilation systems and flammable materials on site. Learn about to the most common welding hazards and how to control them.
We have compiled a collection of welding safety checklists using iAuditor which can be used during daily operations and equipment self-inspections, risk assessments, Job Safety Analysis (JSA) and PPE checks.
Top 6 Welding Safety Checklists
Welding Safety Checklist
Use this checklist before commencing welding tasks. Start by taking a photo of the work area and check if the operator has undergone proper training, understands instructions, and wears appropriate PPE. Next, evaluate if equipment is in good working condition and the working area is ventilated and free from flammables and obstructions. Inspect if procedures were followed during and after work. End the report by by providing recommendations and an overall safety rating.
OSHA Welding, Cutting and Brazing Checklist
This OSHA self-inspection checklist can be used for inspecting safety of welding, cutting and brazing activities. Perform this quick self-inspection before operating any machinery equipment. Confirm that only trained personnel will be performing the task, check for gas cylinder handling and storage, inspect cables and equipment, check the work area and ventilation and ensure proper PPE is worn at all times.
Welding Risk Assessment Template
Use this welding risk assessment template to identify the hazard associated with welding activities before commencing work. Record risk rating based on the hazards and assess control measures to be used and implemented for safety purposes. Use iAuditor to capture photos of the hazard and generate efficient reports on site.
Welding PPE Checklist
High risk hazards are commonly associated with welding but these can be controlled with appropriate use of personal protective equipment (PPE). Use this checklist to select the appropriate PPE and check its condition before commencing work.
Job Safety Analysis (JSA) Template
A JSA is an effective procedure to identify hazards associated with welding, cutting or brazing tasks and can help put in place effective safety controls. Use this template to identify and observe each job step, capture any hazards and provide a recommended elimination or control measure.
Welding LOTO Checklist
Use this lock out tag out procedures checklist to ensure all electrical equipment is safely operated on. Perform a site walkthrough and inspect all welding and electrical equipment to confirm if safe procedures are being followed to minimize electrical hazards.
