Welding and Cutting (Construction)
National Summary

Welding and cutting are construction operations that can present a variety of hazards, including fire, explosion, toxic atmospheres, ultraviolet radiation, and electric shock. For that reason, every aspect of welding and cutting is covered under OSHA's construction regulations. Even workers who are not "welders" as such must be aware of the hazards in handling fuel cylinders and in being near a welding or cutting work area.
