Workplace conditions such as temperature, humidity and work rate affect wearer comfort and the relevance of the different respirator features that are available. A respirator must allow you the freedom to communicate easily with your colleagues and fit well with the rest of your safety equipment.
Achieving a good fit is essential to the level of protection. A leaking respirator could be perceived as comfortable, but not much better than using no respirator at all.
Always select a respirator that meets the European Standard, is CE Marked and offers you the right level of comfort and protection, and ensure that you fit it correctly.
Many types of respirators seem similar but there are significant differences in the use of materials, design technology and protection levels. Make sure you always use an approved respirator to protect your health.
Identify the Hazard - Dust, Fumes, Metal Fumes, Gas, Vapour etc.
Assess the Risk - Asses the hazard levels against safety standards and consider the other protection required.
Selecting - Select the correct respirator for the required exposure.
Training in Fitting and Use - To optimise the respiratory protection.
