Respiratory protection

Respiratory PPE is used to protect the individual wearer against the inhalation of hazardous substances in the workplace air. PPE should only be used where adequate control of exposure cannot be achieved by other means, in other words, as a last resort within the hierarchy of control measures: Elimination, Substitution, Engineering Controls, Administrative Controls.

The two main types of respirators are:

• Air-purifying respirators – protect the wearer by using a filter to purify the air being breathed in. These types of respirators can be disposable or reusable and either non-powered – uses the wearer's breathing to draw air through the filter, or powered – uses a fan to draw air through the filter.
• Supplied-air respirators – protect the wearer by supplying clean breathing air from an independent source such as an air compressor or compressed air cylinder.

Surgical or patient care masks and nuisance dust masks protect the wearer from splashes of large droplets of fluids.
