NIOSH releases CBRN Respiratory Protection Handbook

Assists users in selection, use, maintenance of respiratory protective devices

Posted July 31, 2018

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recently released its Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Respiratory Protection Handbook, which presents information to assist users of CBRN respirators in improving selection, use, and maintenance. NIOSH states that the handbook will be particularly useful to individuals responsible for administering respirator protection programs or developing training programs.

While the handbook is intended for organizations that use CBRN respirators in emergency response applications (e.g., fire service, law enforcement, emergency medical services, and corrections officers), NIOSH notes that others who use CBRN respirators in industrial, public works, construction, utility, and other non-emergency applications will also benefit from the information presented.
