Other Autobody Exposures
Protect your eyes!
Eye injuries are one of the most common accidents in the autobody industry. Wearing eye protection, such as goggles or shields, keeps out particles and dust.
Protect your ears, too!
Obviously, in a body shop there can be lots of loud noise which will decrease your hearing ability. There are many different types of ear protection available.

It advises you to wear a properly fitted full-facepiece supplied-air respirator, hooded coveralls, and chemical-resistant gloves, and to follow careful work practices. The more complete NIOSH report can be found on-line or you can read a similar guide called "A Guide to Preventing Asthma and Death When Applying Spray-on Truck-bed Liners" from Washington state.
