Respirator Files (1990-1991)

May 2013
NIOSH Docket Number 058

This meeting was to solicit and present the available research and recommendations concerning the 1) feasibility and practicality of developing a detailed protocol for conducting workplace protection factor tests that would apply to all workplace settings, all contaminants, and all respirator types, and 2) the available techniques and procedures for measuring assigned protection factors for respirator types that offer very high levels of worker protection, 3) the need to standardize further the nomenclature associated with defining the workplace performance of respiratory protection devices, etc.
