Safety is a critical component of welding, and thanks to The Lincoln Electric Company, now welders of all skill levels can access the safety information they need anywhere, anytime. The company’s new Welding Safety Interactive Guide converts 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.

Designed to educate arc welders about potential arc welding safety hazards and the safe practices they should follow, 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.

The DVD that inspired the new online guide recently received the 2012 André Leroy Prize from the International Institute of Welding (IIW). The prize is given annually to recognize an outstanding large-circulation, multimedia document (including videos and computer programs), intended for use in Education and Training in any aspect of welding and allied processes.

The new online guide is compatible with iPad, iPhone and Android technology. To access the Welding Safety Interactive Guide, visit www.lincolnelectric.com.

Good day;

Thanks for the article and for giving us the knowledge of the program offering.

As the Lincoln site is so massive, putting the link to the document would assist a great deal!

I looked for 10 minutes and was unable to locate it, even with a title search.
