As a former Occupational Health Nurse, I'm aghast. Aside from eye goggles, their workers aren't wearing any protective equipment, even when spraying the fiberglass. Not even masks. By contrast, Casita's workers, appropriately, wear serious respiratory protection, a full suit, and heavy duty gloves.

At first, I thought you were mistaken. I watched the video again and you're right. The lady had a mask while spraying the gelcoat but not the resin/glass.

I've done a lot of fiberglass work around my sailboat and know just how nasty the resin is. I've read about health issues people have after working with polyester resin and epoxy. Even had a slight burn on my leg from spilled catalyst (MEKP) where I didn't have a change of clothes to get out of wet ones right away. Resins could cause sensitivity issues as well. Certainly a part of the build they could improve on.
