An Observational Study of Motor Vehicle Repair Paint Sprayers. HSL/2006/44

Isocyanate exposure is the biggest single known cause of occupational asthma in the UK and vehicle paint sprayers are the work group at particular risk. Specialist Occupational Hygiene inspectors in the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Field Operations Directorate (FOD) have set up a three year national intervention plan aimed at improving the control of isocyanate exposure in Motor Vehicle Repair (MVR) by 2008, with a view to reducing the incidence of occupational asthma in this sector.

The aim of this project was to conduct an observational study of the daily practices of motor vehicle paint sprayers, in order to assist HSE in developing interventions to communicate its key messages on working with isocyanate paint.
