Respirator Selection (Long Version)


Persons who wear a respirator must be trained and authorized by the company. They must know how to put on and take off the respirator. The selection and fit of the respirator must be comfortable for the wearer. This program will discuss the various types of respirators and proper use.

  • If you're not experienced wearing a respirator, put it on and take it off several times, to become familiar with the process
  • Be sure to adjust the straps each time the respirator is donned
  • While wearing the respirator, check the comfort of the mask, how it fits your face and nose, and proper seal between the mask and your face and cheeks
  • Make sure your chin fits the respirator
  • Move your mouth as if talking to make sure you don't break the seal or fit
