Our Industrial Paint Division is "Having a Blast!"

Our industrial paint division is in the process of beautifying a 6 million gallon steel water tank in the northern suburbs. This is the largest size potable water tank in the state of Illinois.  Our scope of work involves abrasive blasting of the interior steel of the tank and then coating the interior and exterior of the tank.  Our industrial paint crew is off to a great start with their safety performance. There is a lot that goes into the planning and implementation of safety on a project of this nature. Some of the safety aspects of the project involve ventilating the interior of the tank, monitoring the air, our crew wearing air-supplied helmet respirators, protective gloves, hearing protection, protective clothing, safety cables on all the blast hoses, a dust collector system, fall protection while working on the tank roof top, aerial lift safety, etc.  Below are a couple of photos & a video showing how it's done!  Great job crew; keep up the safety performance.
