Here is some safety information regarding Spray Painting.


Spray painting is a common practice in many industries, including construction, automotive, and manufacturing. It is an efficient way to apply paint to surfaces, but it can also be hazardous if not done correctly. In Australia, workplace health and safety legislation requires employers to provide a safe working environment for their employees and to ensure that adequate control measures are in place to minimize risks.

This Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) provides guidelines for safe spray painting practices to protect workers from harm. It outlines the steps that should be taken to identify and manage hazards, including the use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and safe work procedures.

Job Steps:

  1. Hazard Identification:

The first step in any job involving spray painting is to identify potential hazards. Some of the hazards associated with spray painting include toxic fumes, fire hazards, and the risk of eye or skin irritation from contact with paint. Other hazards may include the use of flammable or combustible substances, such as solvents or thinners.

To assess the risks associated with spray painting, it is important to consider the type of paint being used, the size and shape of the object being painted, the ventilation in the work area, and the potential for fires or explosions. Once hazards have been identified, appropriate control measures can be put in place to minimize risks.

  1. Control Measures:

The next step in the SWMS is to outline the control measures that will be used to minimize risks. Control measures may include the use of PPE, such as respirators, gloves, and eye protection, as well as the use of appropriate engineering controls, such as ventilation systems or barriers to prevent exposure to hazardous materials.

It is also important to ensure that all workers who will be involved in spray painting are properly trained and that they understand the risks associated with the job. Workers should be trained in safe work procedures, including how to properly use and maintain equipment, how to handle hazardous materials, and how to respond in case of an emergency.

  1. Preparation:

Before beginning any spray painting job, it is important to properly prepare the work area and equipment. This may include cleaning and preparing the surface to be painted, as well as ensuring that all equipment is in good working order.

It is also important to ensure that the work area is properly ventilated and that all sources of ignition, such as open flames or electrical equipment, are removed or properly shielded. Any spills or leaks of hazardous materials should be immediately cleaned up and properly disposed of.

  1. Application:

When applying paint, it is important to follow safe work procedures to minimize risks. This may include wearing appropriate PPE, using the correct type of spray gun or pump, and following the manufacturer’s instructions for the paint being used.

Workers should also be aware of the potential for overspray or splatter, which can create a hazard for other workers or the environment. It is important to take steps to prevent overspray, such as using proper masking or containment methods, and to properly clean up any overspray or spills.

  1. Clean-up:

After the spray painting job is complete, it is important to properly clean up the work area and equipment. This may include properly disposing of any hazardous materials, such as used paint cans or rags, and ensuring that all equipment is properly cleaned and stored.

It is also important to ensure that all workers are properly decontaminated and that any PPE is properly cleaned and stored. Workers should also be trained in the proper disposal of hazardous materials and waste.


Spray painting can be a hazardous job if not done correctly, but by following the guidelines outlined in this Safe Work Method Statement, workers can minimize risks and ensure their safety. It is important for employers to provide adequate training and PPE, as well as to properly identify and manage hazards associated with spray painting. Employers should also ensure that all equipment is properly maintained and that safe work procedures are followed.

Workers, on the other hand, have a responsibility to follow safe work procedures, use appropriate PPE, and report any hazards or incidents to their supervisor. By working together, employers and employees can ensure a safe and healthy work environment for everyone involved in spray painting jobs.

It is important to note that this SWMS is not exhaustive and that additional measures may need to be put in place depending on the specific job and work environment. Employers and workers should regularly review and update their SWMS to ensure that it remains current and effective.

In conclusion, spray painting can be a safe and effective way to apply paint to surfaces, but it requires proper planning, preparation, and execution. By following the guidelines outlined in this Safe Work Method Statement, employers and workers can minimize risks and ensure their safety while on the job.

Gary’s Safety Tips

G’day everyone, today we’re going to be talking about a topic that might not be the most glamorous, but is absolutely crucial for any business – compliance with regulations and safe work method statements.

First and foremost, let’s talk about why compliance with regulations is so important. These regulations are in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved in your business – your employees, your customers, and even yourself. Not only that, but compliance with regulations can also protect you from costly legal fees and fines.

Now, I know what you might be thinking – “compliance is so boring, why do I have to bother with it?” But here’s the thing: not complying with regulations can have serious consequences. In fact, it can be downright dangerous. If you’re not complying with regulations, you could be putting people’s lives at risk. And that’s something that no business owner wants on their conscience.

So, how can you make sure that you’re complying with regulations? One way is to familiarise yourself with the regulations that apply to your industry. Every industry has its own set of regulations, so it’s important to know what you’re dealing with. You can do this by contacting your industry association, speaking to a lawyer, or even just doing some research online.

Another important aspect of compliance is making sure that you have safe work method statements (SWMS) in place. These are documents that outline the risks associated with a particular task or job, and the steps that need to be taken to mitigate those risks. In other words, SWMS are a way of ensuring that everyone involved in a job knows what they need to do to stay safe.

Now, I know that creating SWMS can be a time-consuming and tedious process. But here’s the thing – it’s a process that’s absolutely necessary. By creating SWMS, you’re not only protecting your employees and yourself, but you’re also demonstrating that you take safety seriously. And that’s something that can be incredibly valuable for your business.

So, what should you include in your SWMS? Here are some key elements:

  1. A description of the job or task
  2. The hazards associated with the job or task
  3. The steps that need to be taken to control those hazards
  4. The qualifications and experience required to perform the job or task
  5. The equipment and PPE (personal protective equipment) required
  6. Emergency procedures

Of course, these are just the basics. Depending on your industry and the specific job or task, you may need to include additional information.

But here’s the thing – creating SWMS is only the first step. The next step is making sure that everyone involved in the job or task understands and follows the SWMS. This means providing training and supervision, and making sure that everyone has the appropriate equipment and PPE.

Now, I know that all of this can seem overwhelming. But here’s the thing – compliance with regulations and SWMS is something that you simply can’t afford to ignore. Not only is it important for the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved in your business, but it’s also important for the success of your business.

So, if you’re not currently complying with regulations or creating SWMS, it’s time to start. Reach out to your industry association or a lawyer to get started, and make sure that you’re doing everything you can to keep your employees and customers safe.

And remember, compliance isn’t just about avoiding fines and legal fees – it’s about doing the right thing. So, let’s all make a commitment to safety and compliance, and make our businesses the best they can be.
