In addition to having the right gear, there are several other things to keep in mind. When using pressure washing equipment, be aware of the possibility of hot-water based burns as well as the dirt particles or water coming back at you as you blast that water. Never point the force of the water at others or at yourself. When removing grease or oil from your hands, use a waterless cleanser or soap and water. Do not use solvents.
Other safety in the workplace tips include wearing gloves at all times. There are often sharp bits here and there that you’ll be cleaning. If you do happen to come across something that is sharp, be sure to cover it with a grease rag, some tape or a shim to protect yourself. It is crucial to steer clear of anything electrical like an outlet or a light as you spray.
