Safety

Follow the safe practices listed below when working with pressure treated wood. Specific work practices may vary depending on the environment and safety requirements of individual jobs.

  • Wear gloves when working with wood
  • Wear a dust mask when machining any wood to reduce the inhalation of wood dusts
  • Wear appropriate eye protection to reduce the potential for eye injury from wood particles and flying debris during machining
  • Wash hands thoroughly with mild soap and water after working with treated wood
  • All sawdust and debris should be cleaned up and disposed of after construction in accordance with local waste management regulations
  • Do not burn pressure-treated wood
  • Wash work clothes separately from other household clothing before reuse
  • Pressure-treated wood should not be used where it may come into direct or indirect contact with drinking water, except for uses involving incidental contact such as fresh water docks and bridges
