10 CHOOSING PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) 10 PD-0001 EYES Wear safety glasses when handling wet paint. Wear goggles when cleaning equipment. Flush eyes with water if splashed. Two-component spray mist can irritate eyes. Use a visor-type mask or a full-face mask to reduce risk of irritation. SKIN Wear solvent resistant overalls with a hat or a hood. Wear nitrile gloves for protection against solvents. Use barrier cream before starting work. Use hand cleaner, not thinner, to clean hands. RESPIRATORY Wear a particle or filtered mask when sanding. In areas like spray booths, a proper, correctly fitted respirator is required. It is best to wear a full-face air-supply respirator for all spraying operations to prevent inhaling any spray mists in the operating environment. An air-fed half-mask used in combination with safety goggles is also an acceptable form of protection. Booth ventilation must be as designed, maintained and operated correctly.
