Safety

It could be said that corrosion prevention of steel structures is an above-average dangerous occupation in the construction industry. Most of the coating materials used are flammable, toxic and explosive. Methods of surface preparation involve propelling hard particles at high velocity into the atmosphere. Additionally, there are the normal perils of falling from heights or being hit by falling objects. Everybody concerned, therefore, must be responsible for his own safety, report unsafe practices to the appropriate authority and follow all the required national and industrial safety rules and requirements.
