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 percieved 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.
