Abrasive blasting is a uniquely effective and commonly required industrial process employed in the coatings industry. While effective, it presents numerous dangerous and unavoidable hazards to the workforce. As such, specific safety measures must be implemented to protect blast operators and others working in the vicinity of blasting. Among the most dangerous hazards is the inhalation of toxic substances. This webinar will focus primarily on the inhalation hazards associated with abrasive blasting and will discuss the NIOSH and OSHA requirements pertaining to respiratory and hearing protection during abrasive blasting. The webinar will also address the number one reason why employers should create and maintain an effective safety program.
