Miller Introduces New Welding Safety & Health Guide

August 27, 2015

Miller Electric Mfg. Co. released its 2015 Welding Safety & Health Guide — a 76-page, full-color resource that highlights the company’s personal protective equipment (PPE) and fume management offering. Prefacing all product recommendations are industry statistics and trends, safety terminology and other information to aid in understanding welding safety and achieving compliance.  

The Miller Welding Safety & Health portfolio encompasses four categories: Weld Fume; Head & Face; Hand & Body; and Heat Stress, each of which is reflected in the new guide.    

Miller offers a comprehensive product portfolio that can help establish and maintain regulatory compliance. The weld fume section of the new Welding Safety & Health Guide reflects this portfolio and addresses the most common questions surrounding weld fume. It also features key regulatory information and introduces OSHA’s Hierarchy of Controls — a recommended approach to implementing weld fume solutions that result in compliance and minimize risk.

Because eye injuries are the top recordable injury for many welding companies, the Head & Face section of the guide offers recommendations to address this concern, including suggestions for selecting the appropriate welding helmet and lens shade for welding, cutting and grinding applications.

The Hand & Body section features Miller gloves and apparel. This section also has an explanation of various glove and apparel materials, which can ensure companies understand options within PPE, leading to the selection of the appropriate product for the application.  

The last section in the Welding Safety & Health Guide — Heat Stress provides insight into identifying, addressing and preventing heat stress to ensure a healthy, comfortable and safe workforce. Provided best practices can lower body temperatures and protect welding operators from serious injuries, without limiting productivity.
