Do you use respiratory protection properly, or are you taking a turn of the wheel of occupational illness?

Who doesn’t know the TV quiz the ‘Wheel of Fortune’? Whoever takes a turn of the wheel often has the opportunity to take home some great prizes. However, there are also people who take a turn of the wheel without knowing that they will be going home with something they hadn’t asked for, such as an occupational illness. How is that possible and how do we prevent it?

If respiratory protection is used incorrectly, things can go terribly wrong

Personal protective equipment is used for particular work processes. If used incorrectly, things can go terribly wrong, such as in the case of respiratory protection. If you wear respiratory protection but don’t work with it properly, you will be exposed to harmful substances, so every time you are taking a turn of the wheel of occupational illnesses, without even realising it. There is a major possibility that it will make you ill or even chronically ill.

Nobody wants to take a turn of the “Wheel of Occupational Illnesses”, but you don’t have to, so long as you’re wearing respiratory protective equipment properly whilst you’re working. That doesn’t take much effort, but with these six tips,
