Abstract

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 regulations and NIOSH recommendations, and where your company stands, as compared to similar companies, on respiratory protection.
