OSHA has established a respiratory protection standard covering detailed procedures for reducing and eliminating respiratory hazards. The specifications of these standards can be found in OSHA regulations 29 CFR 1910.134. All measures for respiratory protection are required to adhere to these standards, so it is important that employers understand them before determining the best course of action for upgrading workplace respiratory safety. As a starting point for compliance, employers should have an exposure assessment performed to determine exposure levels and fume components (including from welding) and exposure levels. A certified industrial hygienist or other qualified occupational health specialist conducts this assessment. Employers can also contact their insurance companies to get recommendations on how the assessment should be completed.
