Respiratory Protection Program

What we do to manage respiratory protection

A respiratory protection program sets guidelines for respirator selection and use, medical surveillance and physician’s approval. All respirator use by employees and students must be coordinated through EHS. Engineering controls and modified work practices are the preferred methods of reducing occupational exposure to airborne contaminants. When exposures cannot be lowered to an acceptable level by these means, respiratory protection will be required.

How you can participate

Upon a request by an employee or student with concerns about exposure to air contaminants, or when determined by EHS personnel to be necessary, EHS personnel may conduct a work site assessment and/or air monitoring to determine if use of a respirator is appropriate. EHS will then determine the type of respirator necessary, if medical surveillance is required, and provide respirator training and fit testing. For additional information on respirators and when they are used, see the reference links on this page.
