      • Respirators can be used for protection from contaminants in the air. This is only if other hazard control methods are not practical or possible under the working conditions.
      • Respirators should not be considered the first choice for respiratory protection in workplaces.
    • Respirators should only be used when...
      • administrative controls or engineering are not technically feasible
