CPI releases low-pressure spray foam guidance video

The video "Working Safely with Low-Pressure Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation” is targeted at weatherisation professionals and spray foam contractors applying low-pressure SPF. It includes information about the chemicals used to make SPF, personal protective equipment (PPE), appropriate places to install SPF, job site preparation, cleanup, and safety practices. The video complements the high-pressure SPF health and safety training programme and other free resources CPI has made available to those using spray foam. "Spray foam is an excellent insulation material that offers many great benefits. CPI and our members want to help make quality information about appropriate safety practices readily available. This video and CPI's other free resources are a reflection of the industry's commitment to product stewardship, health and safety. We offer a growing library of information that can help spray foam and weatherization professionals better recognize and employ good safety practices,” said Lee Salamone, Senior Director of CPI. In addition, CPI has recently issued an updated guidance document on fire safety, called "Fire Safety Guidance: Working with Polyurethane Foam Products During New Construction, Retrofit and Repair,” which is available under the "Free Resources” section of www.polyurethane.org. This guidance document focuses on safety precautions during "hot work” at construction sites. Working Safely with Low-Pressure Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation
