Painting application shall not commence unless the substrate is properly cured, cleaned prepared according to the manufacturer’s recommendation.

Before the beginning installation, it will be ensured that the approved valid permit to work (PTW) is available on site.

For working at height, fixed and movable scaffolding would be erected as per area requirements. Scaffolding when erected shall be inspected with the safety officer prior to usage.

The engineer in charge will ensure that approval and standard tools and tackles are available to carry out the work.

Safe access to work areas will be provided and will be approved by the competent safety person prior to commencement of works if applicable.

Check the work area tidy and remove flammable materials if any and a safe environment will be ensured.

Where the Risk Assessment identifies high risk works a permit to work will be obtained from the safety department.

Competent manpower will be employed to carry out the painting works.

Replace materials that are damaged or unfit for use.

No materials will be permitted to enter the work location without being inspected and approved by the Engineer.

External Painting Works

1. Surface Preparation

Before painting commences all surfaces in the work area are to be washed and scrubbed clean of debris and every possible precaution taken to keep down dust. No paint is to be applied to surfaces structurally or superficially damp and all surfaces must be ascertained to be free from condensation, efflorescence, etc., before the application of each coat.

The surface shall be checked for evenness, flatness and true level. Any substrate surface found uneven, bulging, with undulations and out of tolerance shall be repaired/rectified.

Surface to be painted or the substrate must be clean, dry and free of dirt, dust, grease oil, soap, was and mildew.

Ensure substrate is clear of any defects, nails holes, cracks and surface imperfections.

Check and test the surface moisture (for concrete substrate) prior to primer application.

2. Substrate

Remove release agents, curing compounds, efflorescence, and chalk.

Do not paint surfaces if moisture content or alkalinity of surfaces exceeds that permitted in the manufacturer’s written recommendations.

Removed dust, dirt and other foreign material that might impair bond of paints to substrates.

Remove rust, loose mill scale, and shop primer from metal surfaces. Clean using methods recommended in writing by the paint manufacturer.

Blast cleaning shall achieve finish preparation grade Sa 2.5 in accordance with BS EN ISO 8501: Part 1, and control quality in accordance with BS 5493, BS EN ISO 12944: Parts 1-8, and BS EN ISO 14713.
