Welding Accidents in New York

NYC Construction Accident Lawyers: Fighting for Your Rights!

Welding is the cornerstone of creating buildings and structures. Without it, we would not have the current home or building you are sitting in right now. It is a highly specialized trade that few go into. Welders require special training and certification to be able to meld steel and rods together. However, by nature, welding is a dangerous occupation. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 1 in 250 construction workers is involved in a fatal accident due to welding.

At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., we believe that welders should be protected and allowed to work in an environment that is safe for them and others. If you or a loved one has been injured in a welding accident in New York, call our construction injury attorneys today at (212) 577-9325.

Common Welding Injuries and Causes

Welding requires volatile gases and fuel used at high temperature. Construction workers use hot gas, sparks, or electricity to join metal beams and rods together to create the structure of a building. There are three types of welding: gas, arc, and oxygen & arc cutting. These techniques rely on molten materials that can lead to injury if not properly handled.

Common welding hazards include:

Employers are required to provide suitable working conditions, with proper ventilation and safety equipment. Supervisors should make sure that only those who are qualified handle welding materials. In addition, there should always be a fire extinguisher on hand. If they fail to provide these measures, it can lead to injuries.

Some welding injuries include:

  • Severe burns
  • Poison through the fumes
  • Electric shock
  • Skin cancer
  • Harm to the immune system
