The Science and Practice of Welding, now in its tenth edition and published in two volumes, is an introduction to the theory and practice of welding processes and their applications. Volume 2, The Practice of Welding, is a comprehensive survey of the welding methods in use today and gives up-to-date information on all types of welding methods and tools. Processes described include manual metal arc welding (MMA or SMAW); gas shielded metal arc welding (MIG, MAG or GMAW); tungsten inert gas shielded welding (TIG or GTAW) and plasma arc (PA) and cutting. Resistance, flash butt and oxy-acetylene welding are also included. Cutting processes are given a separate chapter. This new edition has been brought right up-to-date with a new chapter on the welding of plastics, and new sections on the welding of duplex stainless steel and air plasma cutting. The text is illustrated by up-to-date photographs of plant and equipment. As in previous editions, the appendices bring together a wealth of essential information, including British and American welding symbols, tables of conversion, information on proprietary welding gases and mixtures, testing practices, safety features and tables of brazing alloys and fluxes. Both volumes contain numerous questions of the type set at craftsman and technician grade of the City and Guilds of London Institute examinations.
Based on OSHA's Training Model, Safety Training Basics simplifies the task of complying with more than 100 OSHA training requirements. The authors provide you with specific guidelines for establishing an effective training program, including developing a training program specifically for your site, determining and achieving your safety goals, and designing a training curriculum and developing a presentation. Organized into six major parts, this book provides an overview of safety and health training and covers management aspects of safety-and-health program development, model training guidelines, job hazard analysis, and putting method into practice. Appendices include OSHA training requirements by industry, OSHA's civil penalty policy, state with approved plans, contact information for OSHA regional offices, and a sample lesson plan and sample test. For your convenience, you'll find additional training resources that you can use while you're developing your own training program.
