Respiratory protection is essential when working in an atmosphere contaminated by dust, vapours, fumes or gases. Many health and safety regulations place statutory demands on employers to ensure that the necessary level of protection is provided and used.
This table has been designed to help you select the correct SCAN respirator for a selection of hazards that may be encountered in the occupational area. It should not be used as the only means of selecting a respirator and it does not relieve the employer/user of their duties as described by COSHH and other Health & Safety Executive Regulations. It does not in any way override any recommendations made in the required appropriate COSHH/Risk assessment.
