Abstract
A guide was presented for providing users of respiratory protective equipment with a single source of pertinent information. Selection, use, and maintenance of respiratory protective devices available in 1987 were covered. Topics included types of respirators (respiratory inlet coverings, air purifying respirators, and atmosphere supplying respirators); respirator selection (based on regulatory requirements, general selection information, NIOSH respirator decision logic, and NIOSH Certified Equipment List); use of respirators according to Federal regulatory requirements; responsibility of employer and employee in a respiratory protection program; elements of a program (administration and components of the total program); respirator use under special conditions (facial hair, eye glasses, contact lenses, facial deformation, communication, dangerous atmospheres, low and high temperatures, and physiological response to respirator use); and new developments at NIOSH concerning respiratory physiology, filtration mechanics, sorption technology, quantitative respirator efficiency testing, certification of new types of respirators, and NIOSH respirator problem investigation. Appendices provided a sample respirator program, fit testing procedures, selected NIOSH respirator user notices, sample Mine Safety and Health Administration/NIOSH approval labels, respirator decision logic, and breathing air systems for use with pressure demand supplied air respirators in asbestos (1332214) removal.
