  • Description:
    It’s Respiratory Protection Week! Every year we are happy to acknowledge this observance as a time for a little R&R. No – we aren’t implying that you should take a nap. By R&R we mean new resources and review of all NIOSH respiratory protection information that has become available since last September.

    Over the course of the last year and a half, NIOSH’s National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory has received a lot of questions about respiratory protection from respirator users, educators, respiratory protection program managers, and general respirator enthusiasts. We analyzed the most frequently asked questions and updated our trusty Respirator Trusted-Source webpage with the appropriate information. This resource is the first stop for anyone looking to learn the basics about respirators. Check it out! While you’re there, take a stroll around the much-improved NIOSH-NPPTL website, which has a brand-new look!

    This update is part of NIOSH’s greater effort to serve our stakeholders by expanding our respiratory protection portfolio to ensure that all workers required to use respirators to protect themselves from workplace hazards have access to the information and equipment they need. You can provide input into this process! NIOSH currently has an open Federal Register Notice (FRN) addressing our efforts to include activities that consider the needs of U.S. worker populations who are underserved related to personal protective equipment (PPE) use, availability, accessibility, acceptability, or knowledge. Comment through the FRN link above (not on this blog). This FRN closes, October 15, 2021.
