Safe handling epoxy/glass

Posted by Michelle Moran on Sep 1, 2004

This is my first time using epoxy or fiberglass and I'm wondering about what's important re: safe handling. I'm assuming that using a mask or respirator when sanding is essential; little glass scraps in your lungs can't be a good thing... But do people really use gloves as advised in the book? Any other major safety issues with working with epoxy or fiberglass?
