Abstract
A joint National Institute for occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report raises sobering question regarding respirator usage practices within U.S. industry as compared to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and NIOSH recommendations. This report focuses on information from the survey of companies in construction, special trade contractors, which includes many National Demolition Association members. The report describes findings from focus groups (arranged by the National Demolition association and conducted by NIOSH) about respiratory protection such as respiratory usage practices in companies such as yours, and how the practices compare to OSHA regulation and NIOSH recommendations, and where your company stands, as compared to similar companies, on respiratory protection.
