Respiratory Protection

The Syracuse University Respiratory Protection Program  has been established for the protection of University personnel from respiratory hazards. The Program is designed to meet the requirements of the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) Respiratory Standard, an includes procedures for respiratory hazard evaluations, correct respirator use, scheduling medical exams, respirator selections, and respirator fit testing.

Syracuse University personnel involved in work processes that may require the use of respiratory protection should be well informed on the hazard, and the proper use and limitations of the respiratory protection that is provided.
