Before you start work make yourself aware of these simple rules to keep you safe.

Always read the health and safety advice on labels. Wear

protective clothing and glasses or goggles to prevent eye contact. Avoid

solvents on your skin by wearing suitable gloves. Always work in

well-ventilated areas and allow plenty of airflow. If in doubt, wear a suitable

respirator. Take care when wet-sanding old antifouling as the dust can be toxic.

Do not eat or smoke when handling paint. Keep cans sealed

when not in use and dispose of waste paint, brushes and old cans at a recycle

centre.
