COVID-19 Respiratory Protection

If you voluntarily choose to wear an N95 filtering face-piece (dust mask), OR-OSHA requires employers to provide employees with a copy of Appendix D of 1910.134, Respiratory protection. This appendix is available here.

Before using a N95 filtering face-piece read and follow the instructions for cleaning, inspecting, maintaining, and storing your mask.

If you voluntarily choose to use a higher form of respiratory protection such as a negative pressure (any cartridge type), powered-air, or supplied air respirator, contact Dan Schutter ( as a medical evaluation and fit testing may be required.
