3 Tips on Staying Safe While Spraying

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Wed, Sep 02, 2015

Safety_First

Working around chemicals or heavy machinery is no joke and should never be taken lightly. At the expense of sounding like the safety police, we want to remind you of the importance of creating a culture of safety at the workplace. Holding yourself and your staff to high standards of safety will prevent many unnecessary injuries. We can never be too careful around hazardous materials and like the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Here are our top three tips on staying safe while spraying:

1.) Wear Protective Gear

We get it, long sleeve shirts, long pants, coveralls, boots, and gloves can make an already hot day feel like your own private sauna. Protective gear is by no means comfortable, but it is meant to keep you safe. While you don't necessarily have to be wearing layer after layer of clothing, wearing clothes that fit properly and cover exposed skin will help. Eyewear, facemask, hat and often a respirator are must haves in your arsenal of protective gear. Even the most steady hand can't prevent the occasional splash and drift so better make sure you are well protected. 

2.) Read the Product Label

Reading chemicals' labels is often overlooked, especially if you've been working with pesticides and herbicides for a while. However,we want to stress the importance of reading a product label to determine appropriate handling and application. Always use the right amount of product given your application to avoid waste and unnecessary contamination. This will also help avoid chemical run-off that may pose a health risk to you and others. 

3.) Ensure Proper Training

Operators should be properly trained not only for an effective application but also to avoid any mishaps from incorrect handling of the sprayer. Make sure that anyone in contact with the sprayer and chemicals has been trained and understands the importance of working in a safe manner.

Share in the comments below what steps you take to stay safe while you spray. Have any questions or suggestions? Let us know, we would love to hear from you.
