All welders and plasma users!
Metal shop will not be providing the majority of PPE when we reopen for the time being. I’ve removed the gloves and jackets for the time being (going to wash and repair them whilst I’m at it).
You will still need head-to-toe coverage in natural fibers or FR material as before, but you will need to bring your own.
There will be a couple of helmets available, but it is strongly encouraged that you procure your own. Your own PPE will usually be a better choice anyway; you’ll always know what condition it’s in, find something that fits better for your needs, and will be.
For the general Metal Shop safety glasses, you will need to bring your own. ANSI z87+U arcflash rated to be in the room, whether you are welding or not.
