In general, the set of activities related to the transformation of metal (foundries, welding...) presents accident rates higher than those of most sectors, for this reason it is a labor activity that requires special attention in terms of good practices at work. and individual protection equipment (boots, safety shoes and other protective accessories).
Similarly, in this sector there is a high incidence of accidents, bruises from foreign bodies and burns being common. The most common causes of injury in the metal sector are those fundamentally related to: shocks or blows against projected objects, splashes and spills of molten metal, physical overexertion, etc.
Because this job involves the use of machines, tools, and the manual manipulation of parts, the most commonly injured parts of the body are the hands, arms, and feet, being areas that require more attention and protection, if possible.
