If workers continue to inhale dust generated during paint film removal or body filler grinding work for long periods, they may suffer from respiratory insufficiency, which results in pneumoconiosis or asthma.
PRECAUTIONS DURING DUST GENERATING WORK
Workers must use a sander equipped with a dust collecting function
Workers must work in the facilities where a dust collector is installed on the floor or the wall.
PROTECTOR AND EQUIPMENT
This is an important protector to prevent workers from inhaling dust.
The cup type, gauze type, and other types of respirators are available.
The respirators with the deodorizing function which utilizes activated carbons, or with the exhaust valve to release air can be selected.
In order to maximize the respirator performance, be sure to cover your nose and mouth.
Do not use the respirator whose useful life has expired. This is because the function of the respirator has been deteriorated.
Dustproof goggles prevent dust from entering workers' eyes.
Goggles which can be worn on top of ordinary eyeglasses are also available.
PRECAUTIONS DURING AIR BLOW
Workers must wear dustproof goggles and dustproof respirators, even during cleaning work after grinding.
Adjust the pressure for air blow duster gun to prevent dust from being scattered all over the place.
