The video library covers a wide range of safety-related topics, produced for everyone from weekend project warriors to experienced pros. The most popular topics include a Welding Safety Overview, an examination of the hazards of Electric Shocks, information on Safe Work Practices, and the Health Effects of welding environments. Beyond delivering instantaneous safety overviews, these videos also give educators and workplace training supervisors easy access to free curriculum for their internal safety-education initiatives.
“We are the first welding-equipment supplier to offer safety information that is intuitive, informative and concisely packaged in an easy-to-navigate online format,” says John Petkovsek, Lincoln Electric’s Director of Health and Safety. “This mobile-ready platform already has allowed a global base of welders, fabricators, trainers and educators to access information about best practices in safety, and gain critical insight around the clock from any device and at no cost to them. Our guide is free.”
The DVD that inspired the new online guide recently received the 2012 André Leroy Prize from the International Institute of Welding (IIW). The prize is given annually to recognize an outstanding large-circulation, multimedia document (including videos and computer programs), intended for use in education and training in any aspect of welding and allied processes.
The new online guide is compatible with iPad®, iPhone® and Android® technology. To access the Welding Safety Interactive Guide, visit www.lincolnelectric.com.
