Title

How to Properly Put on and Take off a Disposable Respirator

Description

WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY BEFORE PUTTING ON AND TAKING OFF THE RESPIRATOR.
  • If you have used a respirator before that fit you, use the same make, model and size.
  • Inspect the respirator for damage.
  • If your respirator appears damaged, DO NOT USE IT. Replace it with a new one.
  • Do not allow facial hair, hair, jewelry, glasses, clothing, or anything else to prevent proper placement or come between your face and the respirator.
  • Follow the instructions that come with your respirator.

NOTE: If you cannot achieve a proper seal due to air leakage, and you need to try a different size or model - you will need to restart the process and go through fit testing again!
