Respirators: Putting Them on and Taking Them Off

respiratorsRespirators can protect against harmful airborne particles, fumes and gases. But as with all safety equipment, they must be worn properly to be effective.

For help deciding on the type of respirator your employees need, see the US Department of Labor’s Respiratory Protection eTool.

While you must follow manufacturers’ instructions for your specific respirator, the following video provides a useful overview. It also includes tips on how to put on and take off two common types of respirators: particulate respirators and half-mask respirators.

When you’re looking for respirators for your workplace, take a look at the selection at Select Safety Sales. We carry particulate, half mask and full mask respirators. We also have a selection of cartridges, fit test kits and powered air purifying respirators.
