Safety Tip - Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Guide for Spray Foam Applicators
Posted By DEMILEC
While working with chemicals or applying spray polyurethane foam products
it is important to provide a safe working environment for the applicators
and applicator assistants. It is important for workers to understand and
adhere to safe handling practices for any chemical that poses a health
hazard. The work area should be controlled and restricted to personal
who are directly working in the area where products are being applied,
who have completed the required training, and are wearing the necessary PPE.
In most cases the appropriate minimum PPE for high pressure application
is respiratory protection including eye and face protection, hooded spray
suite, and chemical resistant gloves. The specific types of PPE may vary
depending on the type of job and application. A complete list of the necessary
and job appropriate PPE can be found in the Product Stewardship Workbook
for SPF application.
