Welding Protection

Welcome to the 3M Welding Safety
Product Selector

The welding helmets in this selector meet the requirements of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z87.1 standard for eye and face protective devices and some models also meet the ANSI Z89.1 standard for industrial head protection. The welding helmets do not provide complete head, eye, and face protection from severe impact and penetration and are not a substitute for good safety practices and engineering controls. The welding helmets are designed to help protect the wearer's eyes and face from harmful radiation including visible light, ultra-violet radiation (UV), infra-red radiation (IR), sparks and spatter resulting from welding processes. Always wear ANSI Z87.1 compliant safety spectacles in addition to any welding helmet. The Powered and Supplied Air (P&SA) welding respirator systems in this selector are NIOSH approved systems that help protect against certain airborne contaminants. In the US, employers must comply with the OSHA personal protective equipment (PPE) standard (29 CFR 1910.132), the eye and face standard (29 CFR 1910.133) and as applicable the head protection standard (29 CFR 1910.135), the respiratory protection standard (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134) and all other applicable health and safety standards. Before use, the wearer must read and understand the User Instructions provided as a part of the product packaging. These products must be used only by qualified persons who are properly trained in their use and maintenance. Misuse may result in permanent eye injury, vision loss, and/or sickness or death. For proper use, see supervisor, or User Instructions or call 3M PSD Technical Service.
