Safety while sandblasting

  1. 1. • Sandblasting produces a number of health risks from the abrasives being used and the materials being blasted. • Skin exposure or inhalation of toxins such as zinc, lead, and silica can lead to serious health problems, including silicosis, lung cancer, and breathing problems. • Ear and eye protection should always be used to prevent injuries from impact stream, dust, and high noise levels.
  2. 2. • Abrasive blasting respirator covering head, neck, & shoulders • Sandblast helmet • Hearing protection • Full gauntlet gloves • Aprons or coveralls • Safety shoes or boots
  3. 3. • Respirators filter out contaminants from airborne dust produced during blasting operations. • Different operations and materials result in a variety of dust concentration and size of particles. • “Gas Masks” filter out smaller particles, gases, and chemicals that can bypass the lungs and enter the respiratory system causing more harm. • Air-supplied respirators must be used for any operation where the operator is not separated from the abrasive material.
  4. 4. • Air-supplied, sealed helmets are some of the most essential pieces of safety equipment and they should always be worn during sandblasting operations. • Always use a helmet that is fed clean air to prevent inhaling microscopic dust particles. • Helmets should fit well – those that are too big will not provide an effective barrier and will let dust particles inside. • Always use a helmet that is in perfect condition and that has a high-quality filter to prevent fine particles from getting inside.
  5. 5. • Only use gloves made from leather, neoprene, or rubber materials that are made specifically for the sandblasting operation you are performing to prevent particles from passing through to your skin. • Gauntlet-style gloves in long lengths create a continuous barrier that prevents dust from entering openings in clothing. • Compatible cabinet-style abrasive blasting gloves should be used when using a sandblasting cabinet, according to the manufacturer recommendations for that cabinet.
  6. 6. • Coveralls add great protection from abrasives by covering a much larger body area than an apron. • Lightweight construction makes them comfortable while providing a continuous barrier over a large body area. • Coveralls should always be worn to prevent toxic dust from contacting skin as well as to protect from mechanical impact. • Coveralls should be comfortable and well-fitted for maximum safety .
  7. 7. • Safety shoes should always be worn to provide a barrier to dust particles and impact from equipment or other materials that may be dropped. • Specially designed safety shoes give the operator a sturdy hold during the sandblasting process that reduces the potential for accidents. • Regular shoes should never be worn during sandblasting to prevent the possibility of particles coming into contact with the operator’s skin or having an accident from slipping.
  8. 8. • Only garments and equipment recommended specifically for sandblasting should be used to provide the appropriate level of protection during every sandblasting application. • Everyone in the area should wear all of the necessary safety equipment, not just the operator. • Dust particles are still a hazard during clean-up and all safety clothing should continue to be worn.

  11. 11. Summary Safety is an important concern when performing any type of sandblasting job. Using the right equipment for the job at all times is essential for the safety and good health of the operator and every other person in the work area.
