This welding risk assessment template will guide you through the important areas to consider in managing the risks associated with welding activities.
This document has been pre-completed completed by our construction health and safety specialists for welding work to give you a good indication of the hazards associated with the activity, along with the risks and controls you should be thinking about.
The risks associated with welding are associated with hazards such as welding equipment, hot works and radiation. Employers are required to carry out risk assessments for activities that may create risks to their workforce, and to reduce the risks as far as is reasonably practicable.
Putting in place a suitable and sufficient risk assessment will give you a good idea of the risks your employees are exposed to, the controls currently in place, and further action required to reduce risks to an acceptable level.
You may use the assessment as it is, in your business, and can add your company name at the top. However, the assessment is provided as a template and you need to check the assessment is suitable for your work process, making any amendments as required to cover the activity as it is carried out within your organisation.
The document template can now be edited within the browser, and is provided for download in PDF format for maximum compatibility across devices - no special software required. Once downloaded you are free to save, print and use the welding risk assessment template within your business for as long as you need it.
