The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Abrasive Blasting standard 1910.94 applies to the general requirements of abrasive blasting safety.
Abrasive blasting, commonly known as sandblasting, uses compressed air or water to direct a high-velocity stream of abrasive material to clean an object or surface, remove burrs, apply texture, or prepare a surface for the application of paint or other coatings.
