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

Wear protective clothing and glasses or goggles to prevent eye contact

Always read the health and safety advice on labels

Avoid solvents on your skin. Solvent wiping will degrease your skin and can lead to dermatitis.

Always work in ventilated areas and allow plenty of airflow. Wear a suitable respirator if in doubt

Always wet-sand anti-foul as the dust is toxic

Do not eat or smoke when handling paint

Keep cans sealed and dispose of waste paint at a re-cycle centre
