Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast

Oct 10, 2016

Hi and Thanks for listening to episode 12 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast.  We wanted to talk about something we feel is very important within our trade that being safety.  If you've been in the trade for any amount of time we're sure you've sat through a few boring made up safety videos.  Sometime they can be very eye opening but most of the time they're just silly, to be kind.  In this episode we talk about our experiences with safety from things that have happen to us personally or has been close by.  We can work in a very dangerous environment when we're not paying attention, so we ask if you are listening to this at work please be careful and mindful of your surroundings.  So download, pop the earbuds in (maybe just one), drop your hood, and enjoy!
