Men at Work: Sand Blasting

By Savvas511    
One terrible duty is to do Sand Blasting on rusted steel bars or other surfaces like concrete which may need smoothing with the powerful sand blasting machine which is actually an Air compressor which connects to the sand blasting canister which is constantly filled with fine sand and blows the sand particles at high pressure on to the surface to be cleaned.

But the men responsible for this job are risking their health and should protect themselves
by special breathing masks and Gogol and heavy duty aprons and gloves.
Unfortunately, the one pictured does not follow all safety rules, and he is in this sand storm
which is created by the sand blasting machine,

See version 1 which shows him from the other side of the picture, and you will see the pressure hose and nozzle in his hands blasting the sand on rusted steel bars,

Thanks for coming back to my photos
