Description

ABRASIVE BLASTING SAFETY MANUAL PROGRAM

Chapter Section

Abrasives and the surface coatings on the materials blasted are shattered and pulverized during blasting operations and the dust formed will contain particles of respirable size.  The composition and toxicity of the dust from these sources shall be considered in making an evaluation of the potential hazards.

Dust shall not be permitted to accumulate on the floor or on ledges outside of an abrasive blasting enclosure.  Dust spills shall be cleaned up promptly.  Aisles and walkways shall be kept clear of steel shot or similar abrasives which may create a slipping hazard.
