Respirator studies carried out in FY for the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health were concentrated in two major areas: (1) the development of respirator test equipment and methods to improve the means of evaluating the performance of respirators, (2) the testing of respirators to obtain quantitative data to permit recommendations to be made to upgrade.

Background. Surgical N95 filtering facepiece respirators (FFRs), certified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) as a respirator and cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a surgical mask, are often used to protect from the inhalation of infectious aerosols and from splashes/sprays of body fluids in health care by: 1.

As you are aware, OSHA requires the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) certification of respirators and that for contaminants with poor warning properties NIOSH specifies that a supplied air respirator must be used.

NIOSH has, however, approved the use of an end-of-service-life indicator for mercury vapor.
