It was a small cavity under ten feet of water; but I think that I can warrant the pond not to need soldering
till they find a worse leak than that.
Soldering is often viewed as a relatively safe process that is performed in classrooms, maker-spaces, Fab Labs, technology and engineering labs, and science labs.
With practice and training, students can develop skills to enhance their ability to perform more complex soldering applications, Advanced educational programs and electronic manufacturing companies use J-STD (J Standards) 001-006 as the benchmarks for soldering quality.
While OSHA provides guidelines for soldering and brazing in the workplace, it offers very limited information applicable to soldering in school settings.
General soldering safety guidelines are provided by Roy and Love (2017, p.
Solder can spit, therefore ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-rated safety glasses or goggles must be worn while soldering.
Conduct all soldering on a level, fire-resistant surface away from any combustible materials or vapors.
Always place the soldering iron securely in the stand when not in use.
