We highly recommend you use PPE. We cannot stress the importance of wearing the PPE. We have witnessed numerous people not wearing the correct safety precautions. PPE will prevent severe injuries from occurring. We highly recommend you protect yourself by wearing protective clothing which covers your body. Items such as a rain jacket are highly recommended. Please don’t’ high pressure clean a surface barefoot. Always wear the appropriate footwear, try to purchase non-slip footwear. If you are working near a road we recommend you wear high visibility clothing. If you are high pressure cleaning on a warm sunny day we recommend you wear sunblock. Please ensure you wear your ear muffs. There is no benefit if they are left on your work bench. We recommend you wear gloves and a face shield. Shrapnel can very easily get into your eyes if you are not careful. Wearing gloves when high pressure cleaning is particularly important when using harsh chemicals. If you are working in an enclosed area use some sort of respiratory protection.
2) Warn Others By Using Signage or Caution Tape

Inform the public and passer byers you are performing high pressure cleaning. Don’t’ leave it to chance. People are curious and their curiosity can lead them to inquire what the racquet is.

A surface quickly becomes very slippery when water, dirt and sludge is running over it.
