Protection in operation and workplace around welding and soldering. Splash-proof covers have proven their worth against sparks, welding splashes and pearls. Flame retardant mats for convenient and safe welding.
Anyone who handles, uses or "only" stores hazardous substances cannot avoid it: the risk assessment. For 25 years it has been the central element in occupational health and safety. In our FAQs we have put together the answers to the most frequently asked questions on the subject of "Risk assessment for hazardous substances".
Explosion protection can quickly become an issue in all industries: Many hazardous substances that are handled on a daily basis harbour a corresponding hazard potential. Here you can find out what you need to know to get started with explosion protection.
EN 14470-1: This is what it says - this is what your safety cabinet does
Anyone who chooses a safety cabinet with fire protection from the DENIOS range can be sure that it has been type-tested in accordance with EN 14470-1. But what exactly does EN 14470-1 say and what load tests must a hazardous materials cabinet pass? We have summarised it for you!
Fighting chaos: With the 5S method to more occupational safety
The 5S method creates order and cleanliness in the workplace and thereby also increases occupational safety. Find out how disorder affects operational safety and how the 5S method helps you to reduce accident risks in our practical guide.
In order not to endanger the welder and surrounding work areas during welding, we offer you high-quality welding curtains, splash protection blankets and welding mats.
Splash protection blankets and welding curtains from the DENIOS range prevent damage caused by flying sparks, welding beads or liquid slag and ensure safe splash protection up to 1300 °C. As an underlay for soldering or welding work, flame protection mats prevent the flow of heat due to their special layer structure. Flame protection mats are available in two different versions, each optimised for welding or soldering work.
Which welding protection do I need?
During a welding process, very high temperatures are generated, which are associated with many dangers for the welder. But not only the temperatures are critical - the brightness of the welding arc can cause damage to the retina. The resulting UV radiation is a danger to the eyes as well as to the skin, which can burn after just a few seconds. In addition, there is danger from vapours that can have a toxic effect and create an explosive atmosphere.
To counteract all these dangers, suitable protective equipment must be chosen. The most important aspect is eye protection. Protective goggles, welding helmets or welding masks help to reliably ward off glare and flying sparks.
Clothing must be fireproof to withstand high heat and UV radiation. It should completely cover the body, including the legs, and fit seamlessly with the welding helmet. Welding gloves, which also meet all requirements, must be worn to protect the hands. Welding shoes are also recommended and provide additional protection against sharp objects on the floor.
What precautions must be taken when welding?
In addition to personal protective equipment, other precautions must be taken to avoid endangering other people.
Welding curtains protect bystanders from flying sparks and heat and mark a clear work area. The workplace should be adequately ventilated to counteract the generation of toxic fumes. In addition, proper ventilation reduces the risk of an explosive atmosphere developing.
Even if a smoke detector should be present in workplaces, it can quickly trigger an unwanted fire alarm during welding and cause high costs. Therefore, before welding, it should be checked whether the smoke detector can be turned off or whether the situation needs to be discussed with the fire brigade.
