The importance of proper respirator fit

  • 3M Disposable Respirator worn while at construction site

    A respirator can’t give workers all the protection it was designed to provide, unless it is selected and worn correctly during all periods of exposure. That’s why 3M uses a variety of innovative technologies and features designed to enhance user comfort. Disposable respirators require a good seal between the respirator and face to deliver the expected protection.

    Per user instructions, the respirator needs to be correctly positioned on your face and head:

    • Upper strap should be positioned on the crown of the head.
    • Lower strap should be positioned below the ears.
    • Noseclip should be completely molded to the shape of the nose using two hands.
    • Always conduct a user seal check.
    • Always follow the appropriate user and donning instructions for the specific model.
