What you should know about respiratory protection
Clean and non-toxic air is the most basic requirement for life and work. We need reliable and effective respiratory protection anywhere hazardous materials pose a threat or make it difficult to breathe safely. Whether in factories, workshops, agriculture, fire brigade or many other industries, workplace safety and proper respiratory protection are a matter of life and death.
How to choose the right respiratory protection for your needs:
- What types of air pollution or hazards are present in the workplace?
- What are the different types of respiratory protection?
- How do you choose the right respirator for your needs?
- What protocols and levels of protection should be kept in mind when using respiratory protective equipment (RPE) at work?
- What do you need to know when using a respirator with or without external air supply?
