Safety Tip of the Week:

An eye wash station is necessary in all industries that handle chemicals and hazardous materials.  The temperature of the flushing fluid is just as important outdoors as indoors.  Most are concerned about the temperature in the winter going below 60 degrees and not being ANSI compliant, but another concern is the flushing fluid exceeding 100 degrees.  This can happen in industrial areas without air conditioning and outdoors where sun  exposure heats the water to uncomfortable levels.  When installing an eye wash station, take into consideration all seasons and climate changes.

Respiratory Protection

Respirator Equipment

Respiratory Protection begins with a respiratory protection program which protects workers against all types of dangerous vapors, substances and particles.

The industrial environment dictates the type of respirator and respirator cartridges needed to protect worker's lungs and/or face.  An effective respirator has to fit comfortably with a secure seal and not allow the tiniest particles to enter the breathing area inside the respirators mask. Respirators, surgical masks, n-95 respirators, supplied-air respirators, PAPR, CBRN should keep breathing resistance to a minimum.

Respirators and their cartridges should be NIOSH-approved and should be specific to the breathing danger.  A change-out schedule of the respiratory cartridges must be implemented by a qualified professional unless the canister or respiratory cartridge has an end-of-life indicator.  The change-out schedule should take into consideration the work practices and conditions.  Disposable particulate respirators should also protect against airborne particles and ensure a secure seal and comfortable fit.
