Protect yourself from all forms of chemical hazards
If you work in the Chemical Industry you already know that many compounds can be hazardous or toxic whether they’re in liquid, solid or gaseous form. Inhalation is one of the most common ways people are exposed to unsafe levels of almost any chemical – so respirators are required when working with these materials. Many of the raw materials that go into making a finished product can be so hazardous that even short-term exposure could cause injury, illness or death so making sure your respirator works as it should is critical to your survival. Other compounds can be carcinogenic or create other deadly outcomes from continuous exposure even if inhaled in low concentrations. Either way, Fit Testing of respirators is the only way to know that you’ll stay safe today, tomorrow and for years to come.
That’s why your Respiratory Protection Program manager places such a large emphasis on testing the fit of the respirators worn by employees exposed to these hazards. Even a tiny gap in the fit and seal of your respirator means it can’t protect your lungs while working in a potentially hazardous area. AccuTec-IHS is here to help you effectively implement your Respiratory Protection Program and maintain your safety in the chemical production, processing or distribution workplace.
