Finishing operations pose a wide range of health and safety hazards due to the volume and physical properties of the chemicals involved. A complete discussion of this topic is beyond the scope of this eTool; however, a general discussion of common hazards and related control measures are provided. To best protect employees from the chemical hazards related to finishing operations, identify the specific chemicals in use within the facility and consult the appropriate OSHA standards to determine required controls. See the additional references section for a list of the OSHA standards likely to apply to finishing operations.
