The prevalent use of paints and coatings across many industries and organizations presents a variety of workplace hazards. In
many cases, selection and use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) is necessary to help control exposures.
Respiratory and skin contact hazards are common across most applications. Depending on the type of paint or coating and
the specific use conditions, other hazards may be present. These can include fire and explosion hazards, electric shock, fall
hazards, excessive noise and other. Prior to selecting PPE for any painting operation, a hazard assessment completed by a
qualified health and safety professional is necessary to evaluate exposure risks potentially present.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently issued a new rule, effective September 2013, which updates OSHA’s 1971 workplace safety sign and tag formats with today’s best practice safety signage designs as defined by the latest American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z535 standards.
The OSHA signage change means that, over time, as employers adopt the newer ANSI Z535 best practice safety tag and sign formats, the United States will increasingly have a single, national uniform system of hazard recognition. Safety signs installed in facilities and public
areas, temporary safety tags placed on equipment, and safety labels placed on products will all be designed using the same formatting principles.
The outcome of such consistency is expected to be significantly more effective communication in the workplace. That, in turn, should help achieve the objective of fewer accidents and more lives saved from tragedy.

Occupational diseases and even death can be caused by air contaminants or oxygen deficiency in work areas. Employers must provide respirators and training to each employee who is or may be exposed to air contaminants or oxygen-deficient atmospheres when engineering and administrative controls cannot feasibly or effectively reduce exposures to safe levels. Workplaces with respirators must establish a written respiratory protection program that includes respirator selection criteria, employee training, medical evaluations, and fit-testing procedures.
