MARCOM's interactive course on Welding Safety reminds employees that there are indeed a number of hazards associated with welding, and provides the information they need to work safely when involved with welding operations. People have been welding in one form or another for over 2,000 years. But like many industrial processes, welding can be very dangerous. Flying sparks, toxic fumes. electric shock and high temperatures are just some of the things that can make welding a dangerous proposition. Areas covered in the course include getting authorization for welding operations, sparking and the risk of fire, guards and protective barriers, hazardous fumes and ventilation, the use of respirators, eye protection (welding helmets, filters, glasses and goggles), using other personal protective equipment, inspecting welding equipment, proper welding safety procedures, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood and retained. MARCOM's online courses come with a comprehensive and easy-to-use learning management system (LMS). With this system you can establish your own training environment by setting registration requirements and defining log-ins, create curricula for various positions and departments, set up tests and more. The system also tracks all employee activity and performance, including, which courses employees have taken, when the courses were taken, test scores, and other important data. This information can be accessed online as well as printed in hardcopy form.
