Job Knowledge is written into and recognised by most Welder Qualification standards and,
dependent on the standard, can become a mandatory requirement (for example, in ISO 24394 or BS EN ISO 14732).
Its purpose is to provide welders and operators with a thorough understanding of the
welding process being used. Job Knowledge covers the associated Health and Safety risks, welddefects and how to reduce their occurrence, the variables which can influence a change of welding parameters, and the importance and understanding of the Inert Gas Envelope, to name just a few.
Job Knowledge also satisfies HSE requirements that welders and operators have been adequately trained, which is clearly of benefit to employers. Providing welders with a better understanding of the adopted welding process reduces weld failures and improves overall weld quality, and this is where Job Knowledge really becomes effective.
