Introduction Respiratory Protection Fitting Instructions 1. Cup the respirator in your hand with the nose piece at your fingertips allowing the headbands to hang freely below your hand. 2. Position the respirator under your chin with the nose piece up. 3. Pull the top strap over your head resting it high at the top back of your head. Pull the bottom strap over your head and position it around the neck below the ears. 4. Place the fingertips of both hands at the top of the metal nose piece. Mould the nose piece to the shape of your nose by pushing inward while moving your fingertips down both sides of the nose piece. Pinching the nose piece using one hand may result in less effective respirator performance. 5. The seal of the respirator on the face should be fit-checked prior to wearing in the work area. A) Cover the front of the respirator with both hands, being careful not to disturb the position of respirator. B) Inhale sharply. A negative pressure should be felt inside the respirator. If any leakage is detected, adjust position of respirator and/ or tension of strap. Retest the seal. Repeat the procedure until the respirator is sealed properly. Respiratory protection is only effective if it is correctly selected, fitted and worn throughout the time when the wearer is exposed to hazards. Note - do not use with beards or other facial hair that may inhibit contact between the face and the edge of the respirator. 56 Select PPE Protecting People Everyday
