Abstract
In 2001, the Survey of Respirator Use and Practices gathered information on respirator use from 40,002 randomly selected U.S. establishments. The survey collected data on the types of respiratory protection used by workers at an establishment, types of respirator fit tests performed, and presence of substances that prompted the decision to use respiratory protection. The findings of the survey raised questions regarding respirator usage practices and how these practices compare with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and NIOSH recommendations. This report focuses on information from the survey for establishments in the Transportation Equipment manufacturing industry, which is comprised of motor vehicles, aircraft, ships, boats, and railroad equipment (Standard Industrial Classification 37).
