NOTE: Examples of training can include, but is not limited to, hands-on and/or classroom training. Training can also consist of initial and/or refresher courses.
IF NO, SKIP to Question 3
Inspector will perform visual inspection of doors when shop is sanding. If no sanding activity is done during site visit, inspector will ask facility if they keep the shop doors open when sanding.
If yes, is this training documented?
Inspector will ask to see documentation.
NOTE: Since many states have not implemented this as a requirement, the compliance verification will be to determine if the facility is following the practice of “documenting.” If the facility produces documentation, then the requirement is met. We will not evaluate the “quality” of documentation.
When sanding, does the facility keep the shop doors closed to avoid releasing dust outdoors?
Does the facility use ventilated sander (dustless vacuum) equipment that captures paint dust and body filler, or an overhead capture system?
Inspector will perform visual inspection.
NOTE: Equipment should be easy to identify. Vacuum sanders have vacuum hose hooked up to sander head.
