    well its like my buddy at work he was tig welding i think ac tig and some jackass came up behind him and shook him while he was welding well somehow the tungsten went right into his thumb through the glove, but he kept welding and took care of it once the job was done i guess the good thing is it didnt bleed.

    hey migman69 I watched all the post on this and I agree to some and not to others, you have to remember that your welding and cutting and every other thing that goes with the job and it's to bad that when your welding your hoods down and you hope you can trust the other guys in your work area not to be screwing around or doing something else such as grinding or plasma cutting and it's all going down your neck(SUCKS BIG TIME) I have seen guys wear a hooded sweatshirt under their hoods or like the other guys say take a piece of cloth and tape it to your hood for the time being. Heck I still get crap in my eyes still and most of the time it's just becuase of my self in a rush to get done and don't put my hood down,so the best info I could give tell you is look at your work area and who is doing what then you make the adjustments to that. I had burnt my eyes really bad just from tacking up parts to the point they had to tape them shut for three days and yes my wife went nuts and was saying you should know better then that how long have you been doing this I hope you learned your lesson from this not to menching being off work.

    Sounds to me like he might have been talking about flash. I used to go home with burned eyes about 3 to 4 times a month. Spent a lot of money on hoods thinking they were leaking. Turns out it was from the glare coming off the other guys welding. My dad gave me a pair of safety glasses that were UV coated. It stopped the burned eyes. I started wearing glasses a few years later and have had IR and UV coating put on every pair. I haven't burned my eyes in over 25 years now. Something else that helps is magnetic tape strips inside the hood. You wouldn't believe how much stuff it catches. I get it at walmart in the crafts section.

    I will forwarn you - when it comes to safety - I don't suffer fools. If there is someone on a production line that has molten metal flying inside thier hood - call your union rep, that is why you are paying them outragous dues. If that doesn't work call OSHA.
