The sheets now indicate whether specific tasks are likely to be Non-Licensed or Notifiable Non-Licensed work (or when work requires the services of a licensed contractor).  A revised edition of the hard copy priced publication, HSG210, will be available at a later date.

RR1064 – Investigation into exposure when the visor of air fed RPE is raised during spraying http://www.hse.gov.uk/research/rrhtm/rr1064.htm http://www.hse.gov.uk/research/rrhtm/rr1064.htm#comments Mon, 14 Sep 2015 08:00:29 +0000 HSE http://news.hse.gov.uk/?p=49408 Air-fed visors (AFV) are used within the motor vehicle repair trade for protection against exposure to isocyanate paints. It is common practice for paint sprayers to flip-up the visor of their AFV immediately after spraying. The aim of this project was to determine the reduction in protection and potential increase in exposure when the visor is lifted.
