Hello Dear, I am working in an industry where resin and paint are basic raw material. From the last month i am having severe itching over my whole body and the bruises are seen. my work is not completely on the shop floor but i have to check the dry painted surfaces physically & else too. Kindly guide me what type of safety equipments should i use. means what type f safety masks and gloves to be used. As their may be fumes and paint dust in the atmosphere.

Thanks & regards
Abhishek

Hello,

I have provided some resources for you below--recommendations for personal protective equipment depend on the specific nature of the hazards that you may be exposed to in the work environment.

Please feel free to ask specific questions about specific chemicals, resins, paints or other potential hazards.
