Respiratory Protection from 3M

Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) must be both adequate and suitable for the work to be undertaken. Different types of RPE offer different levels of protection. To be classed as adequate, the levels of protection selected must be capable of reducing exposure to hazardous substances to an acceptable level. The RPE must also be suitable for both the wearers and the situation , e.g. it must fit the wearer, be comfortable to wear, be robust enough for the environment in which it will be used and be compatible with other PPE.

There are disposable and reusable types of RPE. The broad range of RPE available from 3M offers you the chance to choose the level of protection, comfort, style and maintenance options you need to work effectively and safely.
