Why are the chances of receiving arc burns much higher with the shielded metal arc welding process?

To determine

Reason for receiving arc burns much higher with SMAW process.

Explanation

In Shielded metal arc welding process the arc produced when a high amperage current travels through the air gap between the electrode and work material. The intensity of arc light is proportional to the amperage of the current.

In shielded metal arc welding the arc produced has no smoke to diffuse the light and because of high amperage of current, the intensity of light remains maximum in magnitude. The heat generated by the arc is quite enough to burn the skin completely...
