Municipal public works and highway departments are often tempted to perform spray painting of dump bodies, plows, and trucks to inhibit the rust that can easily form due to harsh weather and road salt. Applying paint and other coatings with a spray gun results in broad and smooth coverage, but it can be a significant source of chemical exposure and creates waste that can become a fire hazard in the workplace. PACIF Loss Control offers this guidance document to help municipalities that choose to perform spray finishing learn how to reduce the risk posed to their employees and property.
