Safety while welding

On the most important aspects of welding today is safety. This is most important in case of amateur welding. Amateur welders are those that do not practice welding as a profession but rather as a hobby. These welders need to take the most care as most of the times; they are operating from their garage or their back yard. There are a few things that you should always have when welding. Insulated gloves are a must. This protects you hand when you are holding the welding torch. The next are the insulated shoes. This does not let your body conduct electricity in case there is a shock or a short circuit. The next most important thing is the shield through which you look at the welding spark. This will protect your eyes from looking directly at the welding spark. This will also ensure that you can weld safely and prevent all kinds of accidents.
