Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey everyone, it’s Gary and today I want to talk about the dangers of working with a sandblaster and give you some safety recommendations to keep you and your team safe.

First of all, let’s talk about the dangers. Sandblasting can be a dangerous job, especially if you’re not careful. The sand that’s used in sandblasting can be very abrasive, which means it can cause serious injuries if it comes into contact with your skin or eyes.

Inhalation of dust is also a common risk when working with a sandblaster, which can lead to respiratory problems, such as lung cancer and silicosis, a lung disease caused by inhaling crystalline silica dust.

To avoid these dangers, it’s important to take proper safety precautions. Here are some of my recommendations:

  1. Wear Protective Gear

One of the most important things you can do to protect yourself when sandblasting is to wear the appropriate protective gear. This includes a respirator to prevent inhalation of dust, gloves to protect your hands, and goggles or a face shield to protect your eyes and face from flying debris.

It’s important to make sure your protective gear is in good condition before each use and replace any worn or damaged equipment.

  1. Use the Right Abrasive Material

Choosing the right abrasive material is also important. Different materials can have different abrasive qualities, and some are safer to use than others. For example, using sand as an abrasive material can be dangerous due to the high levels of crystalline silica in it, which can cause lung damage if inhaled.

Instead, consider using safer alternatives such as glass beads, plastic media, or walnut shells.

  1. Work in a Well-Ventilated Area

It’s crucial to work in a well-ventilated area when sandblasting to prevent inhalation of dust. Make sure there is plenty of fresh air circulating around your workspace by opening doors and windows or using a ventilation system.

  1. Keep a Safe Distance

Always maintain a safe distance from the sandblaster and the workpiece. The force of the sand can be dangerous, and it’s important to avoid any unnecessary risks.

  1. Don’t Rush the Job

Take your time when sandblasting and don’t rush the job. This will not only help you produce a better quality finish but also reduce the risk of accidents and injuries.

  1. Get Proper Training

Finally, make sure you and your team receive proper training on how to use a sandblaster safely. This includes understanding the potential hazards, knowing how to properly use the equipment, and learning how to maintain and clean it.

In conclusion, sandblasting can be a dangerous job, but by following these safety recommendations, you can keep yourself and your team safe. Always wear the appropriate protective gear, use the right abrasive material, work in a well-ventilated area, keep a safe distance, take your time, and get proper training. Stay safe out there!
