https://www.osha.gov/laws-regs/regulations/standardnumber/1910/1910.107

Summary:
This code is from the Occupational Safety and Health Standards subpart 1910 Hazardous Materials and applies for Spray finishing using flammable and combustible materials. It covers the construction materials of the spray booth structure's functioning components as well as the locations and requirements of noncombustible materials and filters. The interior surface of the booth and floor are specified to prevent accumulation of residue for ease of cleaning safely and to be noncombustible.

Baffle plate usage and safety requirements, Illumination of the booth is specified for conditions that effectively provide light safely, dry type overspray collectors or exhaust air filters and are specified for placement locations and discarding procedures. Filter combinations with alternative components are also discussed. All electrical equipment and related including electrostatic apparatus, lamps, portable lamps, grounding conformance. Drying, curing, and fusion apparatus specifications are included as well as Powder-coating equipment requirements. Other specifications include minimum separation for hot surfaces, wiring type, wiring conformance, grounding requirements for all metal parts of the spray booth such as the exhaust duct, piping systems conveying flammable liquids or aerated solids. Air ventilation, exhaust systems, and piping requirements are specified. The fire protection section includes sprinkler system cleaning, fire extinguishers, grounding containers for prevention of spark discharge and valve access. Distances between painted goods are established and maintained.

NFPA

NFPA 33

Standard for Spray Application Using Flammable or Combustible Materials

This standard provides requirements to mitigate fire and explosion hazards of spray application processes that use flammable or combustible materials.

https://www.nfpa.org/codes-and-standards/all-codes-and-standards/list-of-codes-and-standards/detail?code=33

Summary:
The current, 2018 edition of this standard delves into safe use of flammable or combustible material used in spray applications. Building off other NFPA, ANSI/UL, and ASTM/ASME documents, this standard outlines safety means to control and confine combustible material and limit the potential for fire or explosion. This applies to the average use of flammable or combustible mists, vapors, dusts, powders, liquids, and buildup of material after or during use. The designations of limited-combustible and liquid materials are provided to further the scope of materials within this standard. Spray processes that occur outside without any form of an enclosure, are exempt from this standard. Application environments with acceptable ventilation systems, as defined in this standard, will control and confine spray material to safe locations. In addition, these systems are to be designed to regulate combustible particulate residue and overspray.

Proper maintenance and handling, automated or manual, of flammable or combustible materials, as defined in this standard, limits the risk of fire or explosion. Constant supervision and consideration while handling and storing, as well as consideration into storing practices, support a safe spray environment. Design of appropriate protection systems alongside personnel training in case of emergency, has the potential to limit the spread of fire and reducing loss due to damages.

Summary:
The current, 2019 edition of this standard delves into the requirements for ovens and furnaces to operate within safe conditions. Building off existing NFPA, ANSI, API, ASME, ASTM, CGA, and IEG documents, this standard establishes requirements of ovens and furnaces for minimum risk of fire or explosion. This applies to Class A, Class B, Class C, and Class D ovens as well as furnaces, and any heated system for processing material. Currently existing equipment, alterations to existing equipment, and new installations are all covered within this standard. Consideration into design, location, and operating systems, as laid out in this standard, limits the risk of fire or explosion during operation. The design and criteria for explosion relief outline optimal performance with respects to furnace specifications.

Proper maintenance and design of protection measures, as defined within this standard, limits the risk of fire or explosion. Design of appropriate protection systems alongside personnel training in case of emergency, has the potential to limit the spread of fire and reducing loss due to damages. The latter sections of this standard illustrate the specific set up and maintenance for furnaces, ovens, and heating systems for processing material.

Summary:
The current, 2017 edition of this standard delves into direct gas-fired process air heaters used in commercial or industrial applications. This standard applies to process air heaters that utilize recirculating or non-recirculating air, in application to heat non-occupied areas or as a non-recirculating ventilation heater during times where the application space is occupied. Heaters operating at discharge temperature greater than 250 F (121 C) are exempt from this standard. Pertaining to commercial and industrial applications, areas with sleeping quarters are exempt from this standard. Installation of these heaters shall conform with local building regulations or National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1, or CAN/CSA B149.1 when no local regulations are in place. Unique or standalone production heaters are not covered within this standard.

During periods of occupied application zones, heaters are to conform to the ventilation air heater application provisions, as defined within this standard. During the bake cycle mode, by-products created from the heater are not covered within this standard as this operation mode is only intended for periods when the application zones are non-occupied. While functioning as a paint booth heater and during the spraying applications, heaters are to be operated as non-recirculating ventilation air heaters. While operating within bake or drying mode, heaters may operate as a recirculating heater if the conditions laid out in section 4.1, 4.15, and 4.21 are met.
