Welding is a thermal process and temperatures of several thousand degrees are normal. High quality protective clothing, especially gloves, is therefore a basic necessity when welding. A simple work suit will not suffice during the operation of welding equipment; safe welding requires special welding clothing, which is a lot thicker than normal cotton. A special web and impregnation process is used on these clothes to ensure that they are not flammable. When wearing this protective clothing, flying sparks are not dangerous. An additional leather apron minimises the wear and tear of the special work clothes. A welder also requires specific safety precautions for his eyes. The very bright flame is brighter than the sun. Welders should only operate when wearing appropriate eye protection such as welding screens or glasses.

The dreaded "flash burn" could also occur, which could result in blindness for several days and permanent damage to the eyes. Therefore, it is recommended to wear welding masks. These provide complete protection for the face. High quality welding masks contain a mechanism on the glass to be able to switch easily form normal vision to protective vision. This guarantees that the welder is always oriented.
