1 RESPIRATORY PROTECTION PROCEDURE 1. PURPOSE The purpose of this procedure is to protect the health and safety of University faculty and staff who work in areas that may have irritating or hazardous atmospheres. This procedure outlines the proper implementation, operation and record keeping as required by 29 CFR Respiratory Protection. 2. SCOPE 2.1. This procedure applies to all University faculty and staff who work in irritating or hazardous atmospheres and use a respirator. An irritating or hazardous atmosphere is one that contains levels of dust, smoke, fog, fumes, mists, vapors or gases which meet or exceed levels that are causing irritations or are considered to create adverse health effects by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) This procedure covers the selection, use, care, and training requirements of respiratory equipment. It provides requirements for medical evaluations and fit testing of personnel using respiratory equipment To prevent occupational exposures caused by breathing contaminated air, the primary objective shall be to control atmospheric contamination. This shall be accomplished as far as feasible by accepted engineering control measures such as enclosed systems, general and local ventilation and substitution of less toxic materials. The use of respiratory protection to reduce exposures to acceptable levels is only allowed in the following circumstances: When effective engineering controls are not feasible While engineering controls are being instituted fully or when the engineering controls are under repair During emergency situations. 3. DEFINITIONS 3.1. Adequate warning properties: Detectible characteristics of hazardous chemicals including irritation effects and odor. 1
2 3.2. Air purifying respirator: A respirator that removes air contaminants from air that surrounds the respirator Assigned protection factor: A value that OSHA assigns to a respirator, which indicates the ratio of the concentration of a contaminant in the air versus the concentration inside the face piece of the respirator Atmosphere-supplying respirator: A respirator that supplies air from an atmosphere independent from the surrounding atmosphere Canister or Cartridge: The container which contains the sorbent, catalyst or filtering material which removes the hazardous ambient material Ceiling limit: The concentration of a material that should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure Doff: Taking a device off Don: Placing a device on Elastomeric face piece: A respirator face piece made of an elastic substance Filter: A medium used to remove solid or liquid particles from the air Fit factor: A measurement of the concentration of a substance in the air (inside a test chamber) to its concentration inside the respirator Hazardous chemical: A substance that meets OSHA s definition for a health hazard in 29 CFR (c) Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health (IDLH): Atmospheric concentrations of a chemical, or absence of oxygen that will cause fatal injury or irreversible health Negative pressure respirator: A respirator that maintains a negative pressure inside the face piece when the user inhales and a positive pressure when the user exhales Permissible Exposure Limit: The maximum allowable exposure concentration of a material by OSHA standards, based on 8-hrs per day, 40-hrs per week PortaCount: Quantitative fit test machine that measures proper fit while the user performs a series of moving, breathing, and talking exercises designed to simulate movements users make in the field Positive pressure respirator: An atmosphere-supplying respirator that always maintains a positive pressure inside the face piece Respirator: A device used to protect the wearer from inhaling harmful contaminants Supplied-air respirator: A respirator that supplies an independent source of air from a compressed container. 2
3 4. RESPONSIBILITIES 4.1. Risk Management and Safety (RMS) (Program Administrator) shall: Develop the Respiratory Protection Procedure that serves to protect University faculty and staff, and complies with OSHA standards Identify workplace atmospheric hazards Arrange for industrial hygiene air monitoring and evaluations Develop and coordinate respiratory protection training Assist in determining the appropriate type of respirator and cartridges that shall be used. When purchasing a new respirator, it shall be selected from the following approved respirators for campus: North 7700 half face North 7600 full face North 5400 full face Manage the process which qualifies personnel to wear a respirator, including: Training respirator users (see section 6.2 of this procedure) Evaluate procedure annually Supervisors shall: Ensure that respirator users receive annual respiratory protection training Ensure completion of annual fit testing, annual training and medical evaluations Supply the necessary respiratory protection, fit tests and medical evaluations free of cost to their employees. See Appendix A Communicate important information to RMS when changes occur in their department including a change to a process or protocol, new chemicals being used, when new employees are hired who need respiratory protection Employees shall: Participate in respiratory training as required Ensure respirator is cleaned, maintained, and stored properly to assure the equipment remains in good working order Remain clean-shaven along the sealing surface of the face to ensure a proper respirator fit and to minimize the potential for a leak between the tightfitting respirator mask and face Attend fit test appointments. 3
4 Attend medical evaluations Properly wear respirator including proper donning and doffing of the respirator, adjusting the respirator, and conducting negative and/or positive fit tests prior to using the respirator Report any condition that would warrant more frequent fit testing to supervisor Obtain replacement respirator and air purifying cartridges or canisters as needed Medical Administrator (Notre Dame Wellness Center) (NDWC) shall: Conduct medical evaluations for each respirator user to determine employees physical ability to wear a respirator. A medical questionnaire is required to be completed as part of the evaluation. The medical questionnaire can be found on the RMS website Maintain accurate medical evaluation records as required in 29 CFR The records shall include the employees name, their duties and the physician s medical evaluation opinion and/or results Ensure fit testing is completed in accordance with 29 CFR Proper records shall be maintained for each employee on fit testing. 5. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS 5.1. All respiratory protection shall be certified by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). RMS determines the proper respirator selection A respirator is defined as a device to protect the wearer from the inhalation of harmful contaminants. However, under this procedure, RMS does not recognize non-cartridge style, half-face masks as a safe respirator when potentially dangerous levels of ambient chemicals or materials are present. Therefore, such devices shall not be used by employees who have a foreseeable potential to exceed their Threshold Limit Value (TLV) for any airborne material. Non-cartridge style, half-face masks shall only be used as a means of comfort from nuisance levels of contaminants or when respirators are worn voluntarily. When employees are exposed to materials that may potentially expose them to levels which meet or exceed the TLV, half or full face, cartridge style respirators shall be used. In the event that a half or fullface cartridge style respirators may not adequately protect the faculty/staff, self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) systems or Powered Air Purifying 4
5 Respirator (PAPR) Hood shall be used. See Table 1 for Protection Factors for Respirators. TABLE 1 Table 1 Protection Factors for Respirators Type of Respirator Protection Factor Half-Face Air-Purifying Respirator 10 times exposure limit (TLV, etc.), but not above Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health (IDLH) value Full-Face Air-Purifying Tight-Fitting Respirator 50 times the exposure limit but not above IDLH value Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR) Full 1000 times the exposure limit but not above Face, Helmet or Hood IDLH value Positive Pressure Supplied Air, Full Face 1000 times the exposure limit, but not above Respirator IDLH (Atmospheric Supplying) Positive Pressure Air Line Respirator with an Escape Bottle (Atmospheric Supplying) 10,000 times the exposure limit, good for IDLH atmospheres Engineering and administrative controls to minimize atmospheric hazards shall be considered prior to selecting a respirator. If such controls are not feasible then respirators are required. Respirators may also be used in the interim, while engineering and/or administrative controls are being implemented. A respirator shall be worn by an employee who has the potential to meet or exceed the TLV and when all feasible engineering and administrative controls are not effective in reducing the potential exposure below the TLV Respirators shall be selected on the basis of the respiratory hazards to which the employee is exposed, and workplace and user factors that affect respirator performance and reliability. Respirators shall be selected following the identification and evaluation of respiratory hazards in the workplace to ensure that exposure to hazardous substances are maintained at or below the exposure limit as measured outside the respirator. Selection of respirators for any given situation requires consideration of the level of atmospheric oxygen; the types of air contamination, including its physical and chemical properties; 5
6 and the concentration of air contaminants. The following criteria shall be considered: The chemical and physical properties of the ambient materials The nature of the hazard Chemical and physical warning properties Health hazard and risks involved with the materials The potential exposure level The nature of the work activity and physical demand Results of air monitoring, if available or necessary The length of time of exposure The period of time that the respirator is worn Fit testing results The limitations and capabilities of the respirator Assigned protection factors of the respirator If the atmospheric level of oxygen is below 22%, it is considered oxygen deficient and considered an IDLH atmosphere. Respiratory requirements for an IDLH atmosphere are detailed in Section Unknown concentrations of contaminants that have not been characterized through the exposure assessment process, or that cannot be reasonably estimated are considered IDLH. This would apply to most emergency situations. Respiratory requirements for an IDLH atmosphere are detailed in Section Respirators selected for protection against gases and vapors shall be either atmospheric-supplying or air purifying. Air-purifying respirators shall be equipped with an end-of service-life indicator (ELSI) designed and certified for removal of the contaminant. If there is no ESLI a canister or cartridge change schedule shall be developed with the assistance of RMS and in accordance with manufacturer s recommendations Respiratory Protection for IDLH Atmospheres A positive pressure respirator with an escape bottle shall be worn in IDLH atmospheres See section 7.9 for procedures to be followed in an IDLH atmosphere Respiratory Protection for Non-IDLH Atmospheres The type of respiratory protection appropriate for the level of contaminant shall be worn (Table 1). 6
7 Chemical canisters or cartridges specific for the gas or vapor contaminant shall be utilized. 6. QUALIFICATION PROCESS 6.1. In order for employees to be approved to wear respirators on the job, several steps shall first be taken so that the University can be assured that health risks are minimized and safe practices observed Respiratory protection training shall be required on an annual basis or when other changes in the process used occur. The training shall include a discussion of the following items and employees can direct any questions to RMS: When the respirator is needed Why the respirator is needed The hazards to which to which they may be exposed The limitations and capabilities of each respirator The respirator selection for their use The type and frequency of respirator inspections How to properly don, doff, wear, adjust, care for, maintain respirator How to check for a proper respirator fit (negative/positive fit tests) Respirator malfunctions and emergencies How to identify signs that the cartridge is not properly working The basis of the Respiratory Protection Program 6.3. Medical Evaluations Each faculty or staff member who wears a respirator shall receive a medical evaluation by a licensed and approved medical professional annually. Faculty or staff members will be notified by the NDWC each year to send their applicable employees to the specified medical provider to receive medical evaluations. However, it is the responsibility of the supervisor to ensure that the employee receives his/her evaluation Medical certification for respirator use shall be accomplished by: Medical questionnaire Administration of a Pulmonary Function Test as directed by the Physician or other Licensed Health Care Professional (PLHCP) Interpretation of questionnaire and testing results by the PLHCP When an employee is medically certified to wear a respirator, they shall then be fit tested as outlined in Respirator Fit Tests, section 6.4 of this procedure 7
8 Should an employee fail medical certification, the following shall be done: Retest pending PLHCP recommendations Refer employee s failing the medical certification to their supervisor 6.4. Respirator Fit Tests Every individual who is required to wear a positive or negative pressure tight-fitting face piece or dust mask respirator shall be fit tested on each type and model of respirator he/she may be required to wear. Tight-fitting respirators include air-purifying respirators (half or full face), air -supplied respirators, and PAPRs. This does not apply to voluntary use of dust respirators The fit test shall be conducted after the medical ability to wear a respirator has been approved, prior to initial use, and at least annually thereafter or anytime a change in the employee s facial features could affect a proper fit An additional fit test shall be conducted whenever an employee reports or visual observations are made of changes in the employee s physical and/or medical condition that could affect respirator fit. Such conditions may include facial scarring, facial hair, dental changes, cosmetic surgery or a significant change in Body Mass Index (BMI) A quantitative fit test method shall be used to conduct fit testing (PortaCount). Quantitative fit testing is the preferred method for all respirators A fit factor of 100 or higher shall be achieved for a half face respirator and a fit factor of 500 or higher shall be achieved for a full-face respirator before the fit may be considered satisfactory when using the quantitative method Positive pressure respirators shall be fit tested in a negative pressure mode Under no circumstances shall a fit test be conducted if there is any hair growth between the skin and the face sealing surface, such as stubble beard growth, beard, mustache or sideburns which cross the respirator sealing surface. Any type of apparel, which interferes with a satisfactory fit shall be altered or removed An appropriately trained individual shall perform fit testing Fit testing shall be conducted in a manner consistent with manufacturer s guidelines and recommendations as well as all applicable governmental requirements. 8
9 Instructions on how to wear the respirator, adjust it, and how to determine a proper fit in the field shall be reviewed with the user prior to conducting a fit test. 7. RESPIRATOR USE, CARE AND MAINTENANCE 7.1. All individuals who are required to use respiratory protection shall receive a medical evaluation, fit testing, and appropriate training on each type of respirator prior to using the equipment Individuals may use only the type, model, and size of respirators for which they have been fit tested (tight-fitting respirator) and trained In accordance with 29 CFR App B-1, respirator users except those using disposable dust mask respirators shall conduct a field seal check (fit check) prior to each use to verify a satisfactory respirator to face seal has been established Personnel shall select the proper respirator for the task to be performed according to the procedures stated in Section 5. Guidance as to the appropriate respirator to be used may be obtained through RMS When the respirator user requires corrective glasses or goggles, they shall be of the type not to compromise the integrity of the face to respirator seal. Corrective glasses with temple bars (bows) or straps passing between the face and the respirator mask are not permitted while wearing a respirator. Prescription spectacle inserts for respiratory protection can be obtained, contact RMS for assistance Under no circumstances shall a tight-fitting respirator be worn if there is any hair growth between the skin and the respirator sealing surface. This includes stubble beard growth (i.e., one-day growth), beard, mustache or sideburns which cross the respirator sealing surface. This does not apply to loose fitting helmet or hood respirators Use of skullcaps that project under the respirator face piece (tight-fitting respirator) are not permitted while wearing a tight-fitting respirator Employees are required to exit the respirator area: To wash their faces and respirator as necessary to prevent eye and skin irritation associated with respirator use If they detect vapor or gas breakthrough, changes in breathing resistance or leakage of the face pieces. Employees may not re-enter the respirator area until the respirator or cartridges have been replaced. 9
10 7.9. For respirator use in an IDLH atmosphere, the following procedures shall be followed: One employee, or when needed, more than one employee shall be located outside the IDLH atmosphere. These employees shall be trained and equipped to provide effective emergency rescue. This would include positive pressure supplied air respirators with escape bottles. If special equipment would be needed to effectively rescue an employee, this equipment shall be on the scene prior to anyone entering the IDLH atmosphere Visual, voice, or signal line communication shall be maintained between the employee(s) in the IDLH atmosphere and the employee(s) located outside the IDLH atmosphere Prior to the employees outside the IDLH atmosphere initiating emergency rescue activities, notification shall be made to summon additional help to the scene (notify Security at ) Compressed Breathing Air Care and Maintenance Compressed breathing air supplied by a compressor or cylinders shall meet or exceed the requirements for Grade D breathing air as described in ANSI/Compressed Gas Association Specification for Air, G and shall meet the following: Oxygen content of % Hydrocarbon content of 5 milligrams per cubic meter of air or less Carbon Monoxide content of 10 PPM or less Carbon Dioxide content of 1,000 PPM or less Lack of noticeable odor It is the responsibility of the respirator user to properly care for and maintain his/her personal respirator and to notify his/her supervisor when problems are discovered, such as broken or damaged parts, ineffective seals, cartridges that are used up, etc. The following regimen shall be observed and conducted by each employee: Cleaning: Respirators shall be cleaned and disinfected after each day s use. The disinfecting agent shall be recommended by the respirator manufacturer. Emergency use respirators shall be cleaned and disinfected after each use and on a monthly basis thereafter Inspection: 10
11 Respirators shall be inspected before each use by the wearer and emergency respirators shall be inspected monthly. The inspection shall include the following: Face piece: For dirt, cracks, tears, holes, inflexibility, scratched lenses (in full-face respirators), broken mounting clips, missing gaskets or badly worn threads. Head Straps: For breaks, loss of elasticity or broken buckles. Exhalation valve: For foreign objects, cracks and tears, improper insertion of valve body or missing or defective valve cover. Air purifying elements: For the wrong element (cassette) for the job, incorrect installation, loose connections, missing gaskets, expiration of shelf- life, cracks or dents in filter, cartridge or cassette. Air supply system: For attachments and end fittings and condition of all regulators, valves or other airflow regulators. Storage: To prevent problems with respirators, the following storage requirements shall be followed: Respirators shall be identified with the user s name. Respirators shall be stored in plastic bags or other sealed container to prevent its exposure to atmospheric elements. Respirators shall be stored in a place that provides protection against degrading elements, such as physical damage, dust, temperature extremes, chemicals, moisture and sunlight. 8. VOLUNTARY USE RESPIRATORS 8.1. Employees may wish for additional protection against ambient materials that are not producing exposures at or near threshold limit values (TLVs) or wish to minimize nuisance levels of ambient materials and therefore choose to wear a respirator. This is considered voluntary use of a respirator When respirators are used voluntarily, the respirator user shall read and sign the form titled Information to Employees Who Wear Respirators for Voluntary Use and return it to NDWC (Appendix B). 9. TRAINING 9.1. All personnel required to wear a respirator shall be trained on the Respiratory Protection Procedure prior to wearing a respirator and then again annually. 11
12 9.2. Training on the Respiratory Protection Procedure is located within the Respiratory Protection Training course in ComplyND. 10. FREQUENCY OF REVIEW This procedure shall be reviewed annually and updated as needed to meet applicable regulatory changes by RMS. 11.

15 APPENDIX B INFORMATION TO EMPLOYEES WHO WEAR RESPIRATORS FOR VOLUNTARY USE Respirators are an effective method of protection against designated hazards when properly selected and worn. Respirator use is encouraged, even when exposures are below the exposure limit, to provide an additional level of comfort and protection for workers. However, if respirator is used improperly or not kept clean, the respirator itself can become a hazard to the worker. Sometimes, workers may wear respirators to avoid exposures to hazards, even if the amount of hazardous substance does not exceed the limit set by OSHA standards. If your employer provides respirators for your voluntary use, or if you provide your own respirator, you need to take certain precautions to be sure that the respirator itself does not present a hazard. You should do the following: 1. Read and heed all instructions provided by the manufacturer on use, maintenance, cleaning and care, and warnings regarding the respirator s limitations. 2. Choose respirators certified for use to protect against the contaminant of concern. NIOSH, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, certifies respirators. A label or statement of certification should appear on the respirator or respirator packaging. It will tell you what the respirator is designed for and how much it will protect you. 3. Do not wear your respirator into atmospheres containing contaminants for which your respirator is not designed to protect against. For example, a respirator designed to filter dust particles will not protect you against gases, vapors, or very small solid particles of fumes or smoke. 4. Keep track of your respirator so that you do not mistakenly use someone else s respirator.
