For each trade, for each activity and given localities, different ways of protection are recommended or given.
For the work before and during painting are necessary:
- Safety shoes (solvent resistant)
- Safety goggles
- Coarse dust mask
- A2P3 respirator mask
- Hearing protection (depending on the work)
- Work gloves and disposable gloves.
- Special gloves are used when working with harsh solvents or acids.
- Work clothes
- Painting suit
- possibly skin protection
Remember, you only have ONE health!
More information about PPE and wearing time limits can be found in the DGUV 209-014 and 112-190 (only valid in Germany), but again, „other countries, other customs“. My personal recommendation: „Protect yourself as much as possible!“
