Safety Data

  1. Do not operate any abrasive blaster or blast equipment without following the Rules for Safer Operation included in the manual provided with purchased equipment.  Failure to do so could result in serious injury or death.
  2. Do not perform any maintenance while any abrasive blaster or blast equipment is pressurized.  Always depressurize any vessel before loading media or performing any maintenance.
  3. Do not use abrasive containing free silica.  Silica can cause silicosis or other related respiratory damage.  You must wear personal protective equipment for all abrasive blasting operations.  Observe all applicable local, state and federal safety regulations in conjunction with airline filters and respiratory protection. Reference OSHA 29CFR1910.134, 1910.1000 and all subsequent additions or modifications.
  4. Do not enter areas during abrasive blasting operations without breathing protection.  All personnel in the vicinity of abrasive blasting operations should wear NIOSH approved air fed respirators, hoods or helmets.
  5. Do not modify or alter any abrasive blaster, equipment or controls thereof without written consent from Axxiom® Manufacturing, Inc. 
  6. Do not use bleeder type deadman on any Schmidt® abrasive blaster.  The use of bleeder type deadman can cause unintentional start-up without warning, which can result in serious personal injury (i.e. A-BEC, Clemco, etc.).
  7. Do not sell, rent, or operate abrasive blasters without remote controls.  OSHA regulations require remote controls on all blast machines.  Failure to use remote controls can cause serious injury or death to the operator(s) or other personnel in the blasting area.  (Reference OSHA Specifications 29CFR1910.244(b) and all subsequent additions or modifications.)
  8. Do not repair or replace any portion of Schmidt equipment using components that are not Schmidt original replacement parts.  Use of replacement components that are not Schmidt original replacement parts may result in equipment failure which can cause serious personal injury and voids all warranties.
It is the responsibility of the user to insure that proper and comprehensive training of operators has been performed and all environmental and safety precautions observed.
