Code of practice - Welding processes

This code of practice provides practical guidance on how to manage health and safety risks associated with welding processes in the workplace.

Although this Code focuses on welding processes, it may also be relevant to manage the risks associated with allied processes. Welding and allied processes involve similar hazards and in some cases the same risk control measures can be implemented. There are many different types of allied processes including metal preparation, metal cutting, gouging, brazing and soldering which need specific control measures. For more guidance on allied process control measures see Health and Safety in Welding, Weld Australia Technical Note No. 7, published by Weld Australia.
