Filtering Facepiece RespiratorsCheck the seal of your filtering facepiece respirator each time you use the respirator:

For non-valved respirators:

1.Place both hands completely
over the respirator and exhale.
The respirator should bulge slightly.
If air leaks between the face and
faceseal of the respirator, reposition
it and readjust the nose clip for a more
secure seal. If you cannot achieve a
proper seal, do not enter the
contaminated area. See your supervisor.

For valved respirators:

1.Place both hands over the
respirator and inhale sharply.
The respirator should collapse
slightly. If air leaks between the
face and faceseal of the respirator,
reposition it and readjust the nose
clip for a more secure seal. If you
cannot achieve a proper seal, do not
enter the contaminated area.
See your supervisor.

Wearing your filtering facepiece respirator:

Proper Respirator Placement

1. Place the respirator over your
nose and mouth. Be sure the
metal nose clip is on top. With
models 8210 or 07048, pre-stretch
the straps before wearing.

2. Pull the top strap over your
head until it rests on the
crown of your head above
your ears.

3. Pull the bottom strap over
your head until it rests just
below your ears.

4. Using both hands starting at
the top, mold the metal nose
clip around your nose to
achieve a secure seal
