Australian Standards for Welding Helmets
Is my welding helmet Australian Standards compliant?
This is another important question to ask. It is imperative to always use welding helmet protection that is compliant with Australian Standards. Note that ANSI (USA) and EN (European) Standards are not interchangeable with Australian Standards.
Equipment that is not compliant with Australian Standards should not be used to grind within Australia, regardless of whether the welding helmet has a grind mode or not. Similarly, if you require head protection, only use welding and safety helmets compliant with AS/NZS1801.
The relevant Australian Standards for welding personal protective equipment that are important to take note of are as follows:
- AS/NZS1337 & AS/NZS1337.1 Eye and Face Protection
- AS/NZS1338.1 – Eye Protection for Welding
- AS/NZS1716 – Respiratory Protection
- AS/NZS1801 – Head Protection
- AS/NZS1270 – Hearing Protection
