The prevalent use of paints and coatings across many industries and organizations presents a variety of workplace hazards. In many cases, selection and use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) is necessary to help control exposures. Respiratory and skin contact hazards are common across most applications. Depending on the type of paint or coating and the specific use conditions, other hazards may be present. These can include fire and explosion hazards, electric shock, fall hazards, excessive noise and other. Prior to selecting PPE for any painting operation, a hazard assessment completed by a qualified health and safety professional is necessary to evaluate exposure risks potentially present.
