• Use a less toxic abrasive blasting material.
• Use abrasives that can be delivered with water (slurry) to reduce dust.
- Isolation and Containment
• Use barriers and curtain walls to isolate the blasting operation from other workers.
• Use blast rooms or blast cabinets for smaller operations.
• Use restricted areas for non-enclosed blasting operations.
• Keep coworkers away from the blaster.
• Use exhaust ventilation systems in containment structures to capture dust.
