  1. Metal fabricating: World of Opportunity

    Metal fabricating: World of Opportunity

    Theoretically, finding a job has never been easier. You can find and apply for jobs with your mobile phone as you wait in the drive-thru lane for your eight-piece box of spicy fried chicken. It’s fast and simple.

    Realistically, however, getting that job is a bit more complicated. If you include a keyword in the application or resume that trips a red flag in the software system, the hiring manager might never see that resume because an algorithm deemed you unfit for the open position. A human didn’t make that decision; a computer did.

    The job search can be doubly hard for those who have been charged with a felony. Even if they have dutifully served their time, these people looking for a second chance have an incredibly difficult time just landing that first job interview.

    Weldingmart.com wants to help you creat a beter and safer environment for your shop and your employees.

After all, you don’t really know what type of particulates are being released into the atmosphere near you.

    That same kind of thinking can be applied to any facility where metal manufacturing is taking place. Just what are people inside that facility breathing in if they aren’t wearing a respirator or working near some sort of venting equipment?

    That’s reality, however. Dry particulate from metal cutting activities can be hanging in the air, or wet particulate from coolant and oils can be airborne as well. Without the proper ventilation equipment, people who show up to do a job in a metal fabricating facility could be endangering their lungs over the long term.

    If your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail”. That was the first thing my grandpa said to me on the day he finally agreed to teach me the skill of welding. See, he was a master welder, who first learned the skill by plugging holes in a ship deck during WWII. While I was growing up he never spoke much about his craft, but you could always count on finding him in the shop with his helmet & mask on, working away. After
