If you apply the standard (guidelines) properly, your employees will know:
How to work with respiratory protection:
If someone decides to put on a mask upside down, it won’t be of any use at all. The same also applies to what to do if the protective equipment gets stuck whilst work is being carried out.
What the dangers are when you inhale contaminated air:
Not taking the mask off for a moment in a hazardous environment because it doesn’t fit very comfortably.
How the protective equipment should be maintained:
If a mask demonstrates leaks as a result of poor maintenance, it has lost its protective effect.
Which protective equipment needs to be chosen:
It won’t be the first time that a dust mask is being used to protect against paint fumes.
