Why Do You Need A Respirator?
Welding creates fumes, which in poorly ventilated environments, can be damaging to breath in. This often makes a powered air respirator system the ideal choice to ensure clean air is always available. These powered air systems are designed to provide maximum flexibility for the worker while still providing exceptional safety.
While using respirators, a program should be created covering the basic requirements and safety procedures with your company. OSHA Respiratory Protection Standard (29 CFR 1910.134) covers the requirement standards.
