Abrasive blasting

Abrasive blasting means propelling a stream of abrasive material at high speed against a surface using compressed air, liquid, steam, centrifugal wheels or paddles to clean, abrade, etch or otherwise change the original appearance or condition of the surface.

Common hazards include dusts, hazardous chemicals and risks associated with the use of plant and equipment.
