This piece of work describes the main technical conditions for the operation and use of the welding equipment the technical elements on the fire security the welding works, the general security measures, necessary for the welding operation. The majority of operations, necessary for human activities, consist of many individual elements, which require a fixed joining to make up a single piece. In order to achieve some structures, required by the contemporary human activities, the welding engineering represents an important option, capable of solving the top technical issues, ranging from microprocessors welding to the mega-structures welding. The welding technology outworking assumes to establish the conditions for the execution of the weld joining, the serious knowledge of the welding technological parameters, the specific technological recommendations, the performances of the welding equipment and their operation, the selection of the add up materials etc. The welding technology establishing is specific to each of the used methods, by melting or by pressing. Each of these welding operations requires some prevention measures applying for avoiding burns, the electrical shock, the eyes wounding, the toxic gas and smoke inhalation, the exposure to ultraviolet rays etc. For implementing these measures, we presented the requirements provided in the technical norms, technical regulations and the provisions of the legal documents, regarding fire risk prevention, including the binding contribution of the technical-engineering staff, as well as of all the workers, irrespective of their hierarchical position.
