Giving Your Spray Booth Space


If your facility has a spray booth, it is important that you provide adequate clearance around it to ensure you’re in compliance with OSHA regulations. In most cases, that means that “each spray booth shall be separated from other operations by not less than 3 feet, or by a greater distance, or by such partition or wall as to reduce the danger from the juxtaposition of hazardous operations.” This three-foot distance is recommended from all sides of the spray booth, not just the opening of the spray booth.
