Health Tip: Metal Work Safety

-- Metalworking involves using metals to create parts, assemblies or large-scale structures. As a job that requires a unique set of skills, it provides special hazards, as well, says Cornell University.

General metal work safety guidelines are:

  • Wear eye protection at all times.
  • Remove or secure jewelry, long hair and loose clothing.
  • Avoid skin contact with metalworking fluid.
  • Remove all metal scraps with a brush. Never by hand.
