Nah, you don't need to watch the safety video, just get in there and weld.

Once there was a chap named Bob

Who worked away quietly doing his job

Turning metal from this thing to that

Altering and changing its original shape of flat

He accomplished this using tools that could grind

As well as torches and other ones you would find  

In a welding and fabrication shop

He worked every day sometimes non stop

Cutting and grinding and welding a bit

Then one day something got hit

With a shower of sparks from Bob's awesome work

Unfortunately fate added a slight little quirk 

A leak of gas of the combustible style

Had formed a silent cloud that in a very short while

Ignited with a very loud thunderous boom

That shook the ground and filled the room 

With lots of smoke and bits of debris

And Bob was no where that you could see

He had moved on to his new found occupation

As a singing welder at an angelic destination

    As much as that is a stupid person rite there!!!!  I cant think of how many time I have seen and sometimes done that exact thing myself, I weld and fabricate for a living and sometimes there is just no good place for that set of torches especially when you are building big projects.  You do your best.

Thinking with thickness of tanks not an issue with that?  Small leaking around gauges maybe could go?  My worst problem with sparks is getting them to hit some projects I just cleaned up or even painted and it all stuck onto it.  Start Over!   I think if really a big issue, they would have a big slip over tank unit guard made by now, some Osha required thing, heh!!
