Personal Protective Equipment

Repairing auto body damage requires sanding, grinding, and sometimes welding to repair the vehicle before it can be refinished.

Eye injuries are common in auto body shops. Always wear eye protection when you are grinding, sanding, welding, and painting.

Grinding and sanding the paint off sheet metal may expose you to dust that contains chemical particles and toxic metals such as lead, cadmium, or chromium. Wear a dust mask or respirator to protect your lungs.

Safe work practices while welding reduces burns and fire hazards. Wear protective gear including a hood, face shield, apron, and gloves. Work in shielded/designated welding areas to avoid exposing others to the arc. Keep the area clear of flammable liquids, paper, and rags.
