I was interested to read recently about a new scheme called ‘Paint Safe’ which aims to promote the safe use of paint and provide best practice for decorators during preparation, application and drying.
The initiative is the brainchild of the British Coatings Federation (BCF) in association with the Painting and Decorating Association (PDA) and the Scottish Decorator’s Federation (SDF). They have worked in close collaboration with the UK’s major paint manufacturers.
The first phase of the campaign was launched at the end of November at the National Painting and Decorating Show and focuses on decorative paints. A second phase promoting the safe use of industrial paints will be launched later this year.
