Comment: The module should reflect some recent changes to the CSAW117.2-19 standard (Welding Safety 2019 ed.). For example there are new specific requirements for footwear, protective clothing, and hot-work. In the area of electrical safety there is a new requirement for the use of Voltage Reduction Devices (VRD's) in certain arc-welding work conditions. A section on the hazards of stray welding current damage and the resulting hazards should be added. See the CWBA WELD magazine (Fall 2019 & Winter 2019) for more details.
