Warning on the use of Masks and Respirators
Masks and respirators should be used in well ventilated areas, minimum 19.5% oxygen (manufacturer’s definition of minimum oxygen requirements). They should not be used for escape purposes and are not suitable for use by operatives with facial hair that restricts direct contact between the face and the mask/ respirator edge. The wearer should immediately leave the work area and remove the respirator if:
- (a) difficulty with breathing occurs
- (b) they become dizzy or distressed
- (c) the respirator is damaged in any way
These respirators should only be used where the gas/vapour has good warning properties i.e. strong smell or taste. They are not suitable for use in atmospheres immediately dangerous to health or life.
