Exposure Control Guidance Published for Truck Bed Liner Industry

The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry of the American Chemistry Council has published a new exposure control document for the truck bed liner industry, which is a recent area of concern for federal safety authorities. The document is "Exposure Control Guidelines in the Truck Bed Liner Industry for Low Pressure System Applications."

It gives general information and explains precautions and practices associated with the safe handling of methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), including ventilation, personal protective equipment, and work practices common to the industry. The document was developed through an alliance with OSHA's Region 5; visit www.spraytruckbedliner.org for information.

"OSHA's air contaminant standard outlines the hierarchy of controls, specifying the implementation of engineering controls to achieve full compliance. Yet constructing a spray enclosure with sufficient ventilation can be challenging for this industry, especially for smaller businesses," said Barbara Cummings of Bayer Material Science LCC, who chairs the CPI Truck Bed Liner Task Force. "We hope publication of this document will help address some of the commonly asked questions about exposure control in spray enclosures."
