GENERAL SAFETY RULES

WARNING:

Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other 
construction activities contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects 
or other reproductive harm.  Some examples of these chemicals are:

• Leadfromlead-basedpaints,
• Crystallinesilicafrombricksandcementandothermasonryproducts,and
• Arsenicandchromiumfromchemicallytreatedlumber.

Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this 
type of work.   To reduce your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well 
ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such as those 
dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
