Drywall Safety Equipment

This story is a gallery of the tools used to protect against the hazards of drywall construction.

Safety glasses or goggles are a must when you're doing any construction work. When you choose a dust mask, look for one with a NIOSH 95 rating to capture fine dust. If the mask has an exhalation valve, you'll literally breathe easier.

A painter's cap protects your head when you're sanding, but you may want to wear a hard hat when installing ceiling panels. Glue a sponge on top of the hard hat and use your head to hold the drywall in position without marring it. Use hearing protection when working with power tools.
