Safety and operating instructions
WARNING Dust and fume hazard
Dusts and/or fumes generated or dispersed when
using the machine may cause serious and permanent
respiratory disease, illness, or other bodily injury (for
example, silicosis or other irreversible lung disease
that can be fatal, cancer, birth defects, and/or skin
Some dusts and fumes created by compaction work
contain substances known to the State of California
and other authorities to cause respiratory disease,
cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
Some examples of such substances are:
Crystalline silica, cement, and other masonry
Arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated
Lead from lead-based paints.
Dust and fumes in the air can be invisible to the
naked eye, so do not rely on eye sight to determine
if there is dust or fumes are the air.
To reduce the risk of exposure to dust and fumes,
do all of the following:
Perform site-specific risk assessment. The risk
assessment must include dust and fumes created
by the use of the machine and the potential for
disturbing existing dust.
Use proper engineering controls to minimize the
amount of dust and fumes in the air and to
minimize build-up on equipment, surfaces,
clothing, and body parts. Examples of controls
include: exhaust ventilation and dust collection
systems, water sprays, and wet drilling. Control
dusts and fumes at the source where possible.
Make sure that controls are properly installed,
maintained and correctly used.
Wear, maintain and correctly use respiratory
protection as instructed by your employer and as
required by occupational health and safety
regulations. The respiratory protection must be
