Abstract
The responsibilities for safe working in spray painting operations are outlined for management, supervisory staff and painters. Particular hazards in the compressed air, airless, and electrostatic application processes are described. The hazards of spray painting include chemicals which can be harmful when inhaled, ingested, or absorbed by the skin, and fires and explosions from the solvents involved. Ventilation is the primary means of preventing all types of hazard. Basic rules for fire prevention are given. Respiratory protective equipment, eye and skin protection and protective clothing and their use are described. Accident prevention inspections, personal care and emergency measures conclude the safety measures to be used in spray painting operations.
