Respiratory Protection

“Use industrial hygiene professionals or paraprofessionals working under the direction of an industrial hygiene professional to evaluate airborne exposures to engineered nanomaterials. If respirators are to be used for protections against engineered nanoparticles, select and use half-mask, P-100 cartridge-type respirators or respirators that provide a higher level of protection.”1
