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 regulations and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recommendations.
