When do employees need respiratory protection?
- When employees must work in environments with insufficient oxygen or where harmful dusts, fogs, smokes, mists, fumes, gases, vapors, or sprays are present, they need respirators.
- Whenever engineering and work practice control measures are not adequate to prevent atmospheric contamination at the worksite.

- Remove protective covers from filters prior to inserting the filters.
- Every user should have a proper respirator mask fit test.
- Change filters regularly.
