Respiratory Protection Benefits
Respiratory protection is absolutely essential to keep potentially damaging inhaled substances out of your lungs. Find respiratory protection products to match your job and budget.
Necessary Safety Supplies
In any project where workers are at risk of inhaling dust, smoke, fumes, gases, vapors or sprays, it’s necessary to use respiratory protection. These hazards can cause lung irritation, diseases, cancer or even death. Masks and respirators cover the nose and mouth and some cover your entire face.
Match Your Job and Budget
Masks are less expensive than other respirator masks, but they are not reusable. Single strap masks are good for common household dust and pollen. N95 dual strap respirators are at least 95% efficient when tested against salt. Half facepiece respirators are comfortable, convenient and cost effective. Fullface masks come in one and two-man systems.
Meet OSHA Requirements
To choose the right respirator, assess your job, the processes and the environment. OSHA mandates that if respirators are required in the workplace, the respirators used must be approved by the NIOSH. A first step in choosing the right respiratory protection product is identifying the hazard(s) and its airborne concentration.
