Impaired Vision

When installing equipment, repairing parts, and fabricating material is always hazardous.  A lifetime eye injury can easily occur when HVAC system’s fastener comes off and hits your eye.  Combine that with splashing chemicals and refrigerants; HVAC workers definitely require some protective eyewear.

Sharp Objects

Working with a duct take off exposes a workers hands to sharp metal. Servicing contractor’s hands can easily get sliced up around sheet metal.  Duct work exposes workers to extreme cut hazards and replacing filters can easily cut up one’s hands. Cut resistant gloves should be worn when handling anything that could lacerate you such as sheet metal.
