Everyday thousands of workers are subjected to airborne contaminates. These different contaminates can cause great harm to the respiratory system and other vital systems if allowed to enter the human body. While the human body has natural defense mechanisms in place, they are no match for the harmful dust, mist, vapors and other airborne contaminates often created in the workplace.
To protect you from such hazards, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, created the Respiratory Protection Standard 29 CFR 1910.134. Approximately 5% of all U.S. workers in about 20% of all work establishments wear respirators at least some of the time while performing their job functions.
A respirator is a personal protective device worn on the face, covers at least the nose and mouth, and is used to reduce the wearer's risk of inhaling hazardous airborne particles (including dust particles and infectious agents), gases or vapors. Certain respirators also provide protection for oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
