RESPIRATORY PROTECTION

North Respirators

How To Properly Don Disposable Respirators


1. Untwist straps. Thread bottom strap through bottom buckle and repeat for top strap. Hold respirator in hand with nose contour (narrow end) at fingertips, allowing headstraps to fall below hand.


2. Place respirator under chin with molded nose contour (narrow end) up. Flange must be uncreased inside respirator. Raise top strap to top back of head. Pull shorter bottom strap head, below ears, to around neck. Do not wear with only one strap.


3. Adjust tension on both top and bottom straps to provide a tight and comfortable seal. To tighten, pull ends of straps. To loosen, push open hinge of buckle with thumb and pull on strap.


4. Each time user enters work area the respirator must be seal checked. Cover front of respirator by cupping both hands.
INHALE SHARPLY. A negative pressure should be felt inside respirator. If any leakage is detected at respirator edges, adjust straps by pulling back along the sides and/or reposition the respirator. Repeat until sealed properly, otherwise do not enter work area and see your supervisor. Entry into a contaminated area with an improper fit may result in sickness or death.
