Comply with all Relevant Spray Booth HSE Legislation
To meet the requirements of legislation for Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) part of our spray booth testing includes a mist clearance test. The mist clearance test measures the time it takes to clear isocyanate particles from the spray booth. This spray booth testing should be carried out alongside a thorough examination and check of the whole LEV System at intervals not to exceed 14 months.
Regular Replacement of Spray Booth Filters
Health and Safety law demands that you must assess the risks to your workers from hazardous substances such as dust, fumes, vapours etc. All of which can be detrimental to the health of those exposed. It is reported that exposure to materials containing isocyanate paint particles are the leading cause of occupational asthma in the UK, with vehicle paint sprayers being 80 times more likely to develop occupational asthma than workers in other industries. If a spray booth does not incorporate an effective filtration system or proper safety precautions are not taken, fine paint mist may not be contained within the cabin effectively, leading to exposure outside the Spray booth. It is the responsibility of the body shop owner to ensure that the filtration systems are correctly maintained and the spray booth filters are replaced regularly. AGM Service can provide assistance in both recommending the right type of filtration for your spray booth and also supply high quality extract filters in any size you may require at competitive rates.
