A representative of GMG Envirosafe warned attendees of the Collision Industry Conference held April 9-10 that OSHA is cracking down on body shops to ensure workers are protected from isocyanate exposure.Brandon Thomas, chief operations officer of GMG, a company that offers OSHA, EPA and DOT compliance solutions, said a study done by OSHA’s counterpart in Britain found that painters in a body shop environment have 80 times the risk of occupational asthma from isocyanates than industrial workers. It’s precisely for that reason, Thomas said, that OSHA is targeting the collision industry more aggressively than others.

According to Thomas, OSHA has fined body shops $1.6 million over the last three years. OSHA’s enforcement division has increased inspections 25 percent over the last four years because they have a bigger budget, and there is an average of 4.33 citations per inspection.

OSHA’s goal, Thomas said, is to eliminate isocyanate exposure altogether in two ways: engineering controls (spraybooth, mixing rooms, ventilation, gun washers, etc.) and administrative controls (PPE training and processes).

The purchase price of a compressor is an important consideration when comparing new equipment options, but it’s only one of several cost components that affect the overall cost of owning and operating an air system. Low price options often have higher life cycle costs.

Installation, energy, maintenance and repair, as well as lost time and materials each greatly impact the overall bottom line of your compressed air system. Be sure to consider each of these other cost drivers as you are making a purchasing decision. In many cases, the benefits in one area outweigh the costs in another and vice versa.

Installation: The equipment you select directly impacts installation costs. It’s common for buyers to build separate rooms or structures to isolate noisy, vibrating compressors from employees and customers for the sake of safety and comfort. When selecting equipment, it is always a good idea to review the sound pressure level, general environmental requirements, such as air intake and discharge, and general electrical requirements of the equipment. Choices in piping also impact installation time and labor.
