Filtering out Confusion: Frequently Asked Questions about Respiratory Protection, User Seal Check

Filtering out Confusion: Frequently Asked Questions about Respiratory Protection, User Seal Check
 
DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2018-130
 
Over 3 million United States employees in approximately 1.3 million workplaces are required to wear respiratory protection. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) (29 CFR 1910.134) requires an annual fit test to confirm the fit of any respirator that forms a tight seal on the wearer’s face before it is used in the workplace. Once a fit test has been done to determine the best respirator model and size for a particular user, a user seal check should be done every time the respirator is to be worn to ensure an adequate seal is achieved.
