Abstract The coating of concrete floors or metallic vessels and tanks with synthetic resins is a widespread process in the building and construction industry. The variety of chemicals and the manner in which they are handled represent potential risk factors. This guide describes an approach for identifying these hazards and implementing preventive measures. Contents: hazard evaluation (hazard identification, task observation, fire and explosion hazards); preventive measures on construction sites (product selection, site preparation, work planning). Appendices include: main types of synthetic resins used; properties of selected solvents; exposure evaluation; work in confined spaces; respirator selection; selection of protective gloves.
