Electrical Shock
Electric arc welders can produce a shock that can cause injury or death. Touching electrically live
parts can cause fatal shocks and severe burns. While welding, all metal components connected to the
wire are electrically hot. Poor ground connections are a hazard, so secure the ground lead before

Fumes and Gases
Do not use the plasma cutter in the presence of gasoline, diesel, propane, or other flammable
liquids. Sparks created from the cutter may ignite liquids or fumes, causing an explosion and
serious injury or death.
Fumes emitted from the welding process displace clean air and can result in injury or death.
Do not breathe in fumes emitted by the welding process. Make sure your breathing air is clean
and safe.
Work only in a well-ventilated area or use a ventilation device to remove welding fumes from the
environment where you will be working.
Do not weld on coated materials (galvanized, cadmium plated or containing zinc, mercury, or
barium). They will emit harmful fumes that are dangerous to breathe. If necessary use a ventilator,
respirator with air supply, or remove the coating from the material in the weld area.
The fumes emitted from some metals when heated are extremely toxic. Refer to the material
