|Publication Date:||1 October 2006|
This Standard provides minimum requirements and recommendations to protect persons who work in an environment affected by welding, cutting, and allied processes from illness and injury, and to prevent damage to property arising from the installation, operation, and maintenance of equipment used in these processes.
This Standard specifies the elements of a welding health and safety program (see Clause 4) that are necessary to implement the requirements and recommendations described in Clause 1.1.1.
This Standard applies to all personnel working in an environment affected by welding, cutting, and allied processes.
The requirements of this Standard apply to the processes illustrated in the Master chart of welding and allied processes (see Figure A.1).
Where a conflict arises between a requirement in this Standard and the legislative requirements of a provincial or federal jurisdiction, the legislative requirements prevail.
