Respirators are crucial equipment used for a variety of jobs but if the fit isn't correct, they may not help at all. Fit-testing is required annually and before a respirator is used on a job or whenever a different face piece is used. Respirator Safety: A Sure Fit shows your workers how to fit test their apparatus properly.
An estimated 5 million workers are required to wear respirators in over 1.3 million workplaces throughout the United States. Respirators protect workers from a variety of threats, including insufficient oxygen environments, harmful dusts, fogs, smokes, mists, gases, vapors, and sprays. Respirator Safety: A Sure Fit explains that it is the employer’s responsibility to defend workers against these hazards through the use of respirators as these hazards may cause cancer, lung impairment, diseases, or death.
Respirators protect the user in two basic ways; by the removal of contaminants from the air or by supplying clean breathable air from secondary source. Respirator Safety: A Sure Fit will show your employees how these respirators work and how to conduct the fit test to ensure safe breathing conditions when working in hazardous atmospheres.
