Respirator Protection

Particulate Filtering Facepiece Respirator Training Handout

Respiratory protection, when properly fitted and worn, can be an effective means to protect individuals from infectious diseases that are transmitted through airborne infectious particulates. A risk assessment must be conducted by the PI/Supervisor and/or EHSO to determine if a respirator is required and what type of respirator is appropriate to the hazardous conditions present. Contact Kakaʻako EHSO with any questions regarding respirators

Requirements for the use of Respirators (Appendix D)

When an individual is required to wear a respirator to prevent occupational exposure to hazardous materials, the individual must have medical clearance to use/wear a respirator, must complete annual fit testing for each respirator that will be used, and must complete annual respirator safety training.
