Protecting Workers from the Hazards of Abrasive Blasting Materials

Abrasive blasting uses compressed air or water to direct a high velocity stream of an abrasive material to clean an object or surface, remove burrs, apply a texture, or prepare a surface for the application of paint or other type of coating. Employers must protect workers from hazardous dust levels and toxic metals that may be generated from both the blasting material and the underlying substrate and coatings being blasted. This fact sheet provides information on abrasive blasting material, health hazards, and methods to protect workers.

Ask The Consultant
By Chuck Daleo

Q: What is required for an eave? - James T.

What Jim meant is what are the requirements for fire ratings of an eave?. For this purpose I will stick with the California Residential Code (CRC).

Please remember that when you are building a residential use, you must follow the CRC and not the CBC.

KEEP UP WITH LADDER SAFETY

Ladder safety begins with selecting the right ladder for the job and includes inspection, setup, proper climbing or standing, proper use, care, and storage. This combination of safe equipment and its safe use can eliminate most ladder accidents.

Always check a ladder before using it. Inspect wood ladders for cracks or splits. Inspect metal and fiberglass ladders for bends and breaks. Never use a damaged ladder. Tag it "Defective" and report it to your supervisor.

LA SEGURIDAD EN LAS ESCALERAS

La seguridad en las escaleras de mano comienza con la selección de la escalera adecuada para el trabajo a realizar e incluye revisarla, instalarla, saber cómo subirse y pararse, usarla correctamente, cuidarla y guardarla. Esta combinación del uso de equipo seguro y su utilización sin riesgos puede eliminar la mayoría de los accidentes que ocurren con las escaleras.

Revise siempre la escalera antes de usarla. Cheque que las escaleras de madera no tengan rajaduras ni grietas, y que las escaleras de metal y de fibra de vidrio no tengan curvaturas ni roturas. Nunca use una escalera de mano que esté dañada. Póngale una etiqueta de "Defective" ("Defectuosa") y repórtela a su supervisor.

Capitol Connection Q&A for Contractors
By Shauna Krause, President, Capitol Services, Inc

Some state’s contractor exams are hard while others can be an ‘open book’. However, our first contractor gets a ‘pass’ on one exam and ‘cracks’ the book on another. A NV question has a ‘foreign’ accent, while I demonstrate how to ‘cut red tape’ for a multi-state contractor…

Q:  I am going to be taking the Arizona Construction Business exam. I don’t believe I have to take the “CR-39” (Air Conditioning & Refrigeration) trade exam, although I’d like you to check on that for me if you could. I read in PSI’s informational packet it is permitted to bring a book in the Business exam with me. Do you have the book and am I allowed to take notes within the book?
