Abstract This article addresses the question of limiting exposures in paint shops. In order to eliminate or control risks at the source, it is preferable to use products that have low toxicity for the workers, such as the less dangerous water-based paints instead of solvent-based paints. Similarly, exposure phases should be minimized by using automated painting booths. Next, collective protection measures should be implemented, in particular the ventilation of the workshop to eliminate polluted air. Finally, as a last resort, workers should be equipped with personal protective equipment.
