Vehicle paint spraying
Workers undertaking vehicle paint spraying in the motor vehicle repair industry and motor and semi-trailer manufacturing typically can suffer from occupational asthma though the use of 2-pack (2K) isocyanate paints.
Intervention activities include:
- A vocational educational tool to raise awareness of respiratory health risks for those working and training in the motor vehicle repair industry.
Information on intervention initiatives is available by registering on the Occupational Disease Community site.
Specific guidance for employers on reducing the incidence of respiratory disease in these workers is available on HSE’s asthma web pages.
