General Safety Recommendations
Barrier creme may be applied to the skin in areas, which may be exposed to shavings prior to beginning work.
Clean clothes should be worn each day. Do not wear clothing that has not been laundered to begin a work shift. More frequent changing may be required by conditions.
Long sleeved shirts or work suits should be used.
Gloves with elastic cuffs should be worn at all times. Replace worn or contaminated gloves as necessary. Gloves with flared, stiff cuffs act as a gathering funnel for shavings.
Pant legs should be worn outside work boots. If necessary for safety purposes, the pant legs can be taped to fit closely to the boot. Over-the-calf socks can be used to prevent chafing of the boot on the skin.
