TOOLBOX TIP: STAY SAFE WHEN SPRAY PAINTING
Spray painting is an efficient and effective way to cover large areas or irregular
surfaces with even coats of primer, paint, sealers and other coatings. When you are
using spray paint, it is important to recognize and guard against potential hazards.
Why it is Dangerous:
Many paints, coatings, catalysts, sealers, hardeners and solvents contain hazardous
chemicals to which you could be exposed during mixing, spraying, grinding and
sanding tasks. Overexposure can cause nausea, rash, asthma, dermatitis or even
lung cancer. In addition, some coatings contain flammable substances, which are
released into the air when you use high-pressure equipment. As they build up, these
vapors can create an explosion hazard. To protect yourself from these and other
health hazards, study the following guidelines to safe spray painting practices.
Ways to Protect Yourself:
Before beginning a new task, consult the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for each product
you will use. You will find information specific to that chemical, including its hazards,
appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), proper handling, transport,
storage and disposal.
