Abstract
Procedures for minimizing worker exposure to paint spray components such as lead (7439921), chromium (7440473), liquid organic solvents, and polyisocyanates that may cause nervous disorders and skin and eye irritation in autobody repair shop workers are presented. The use of high volume, low pressure (HVLP) spray painting guns can decrease paint overspray concentrations by 50%, respectively. The proper use of downdraft spray paint ventilation booths is also advised to produce lower concentrations of paint overspray and a cleaner paint job that requires less buffing. An illustration of a downdraft ventilation paint booth is provided. Personal respiratory protective equipment and respiratory protection programs that contain OSHA standards are recommended to fully protect workers from paint overspray.
