The Hygiene risks that occur in respiratory protection masks are often an afterthought. Getting your workforce to wear respiratory protection and keep it on while working is a big enough issue, without the added problem of keeping it clean. Add to this, research carried out by the Health and Safety Executive which reported the reasons why respiratory protection is not worn: skin irritation; feeling too hot; and difficulty in breathing.

With multiple challenges to address when selecting respiratory protection, it’s difficult to find a product to solve all of these problems, while also offering your workforce sufficient protection for the task at hand.

There is a solution that we have found, and want to share with you.
