Welding Environment and Equipment HRA


The welding landscape is changing rapidly throughout the world; this has meant that companies now need to be aware of -


  • OHS Act
  • Hazardous Substances Act
  • Hazardous Substances Regulations
  • Hazardous Substances Code of practice
  • Dangerous Goods Regulations
  • Welding Technology Institute of Australia Technical notes 7 – 04, 22 – 03
  • Exposure Standards For Atmospheric Contaminants in the Occupational Environment [ NOHSC : 3008 (1995)] Section 17 Fumes and Gases

There is a requirement to have control of your welding environment within your organisation.  Your biggest exposure in welding is human error and equipment failure. Our comprehensive approach is focused on identifying and offering solutions in those areas, such as systems, training, documentation, planning etc.


Why do a Welding Environment HRA?


Welding is hazardous, and just one example of the process “welding fumes” immediately requires organisations to achieve controls stated in hazardous substances acts and regulations throughout Australia. Every state and territory is different in their welding safety requirements; overall authorities are asking to have safety measures in –

  • Welding machine and equipment electrical safety
  • Correct personnel protective clothing
  • Respiratory protection
  • Ultra – violet and infra red protection
  • Internal welding safety protocols

Stated above is only a small part of what is required in having a safe and controlled welding environment.

Assessment Criteria


Our Assessmet criteria complies with all Acts, DG Acts, Regulations and appropriate Australian Standards.  It provides you with a whole analysis of your organisation in how Oxy/Fuel allied processes are managed and operated.  It identifies the quality of equipment, the skills and knowledge of operators, culture, communication between management and operators and most importantly the commitment within the organisation towards Oxy/Fuel Safety.  We record all hazards identified, calculate the risk to business, communicate and recommend appropriate controls and document the action taken.  Quantec Solutions can assist implementing strategies to improve safety to increase production and up skill management and operator awareness which fit within your resources.
