    At the previous committee meeting, it was decided to add text that warned against touching the surface with an unprotected hand. When that text was balloted at the subcommittee, it attracted one negative expressing concerns that the language Abrasive blast cleaned steel should never be touched with an unprotected hand... could make inspectors liable for every possible fingerprint. The negative voter and the member who proposed the original text worked together to address each others concerns and formulate revised text for balloting, below. The two members are thanked for their efforts.
