Respiratory Protection Program
The Department of Administration's program applies to all employees who are required to wear respirators during normal work operations, and during some non-routine operations such as mold remediation.
The Department has determined that some of its employees may be exposed to respiratory hazards during routine operations. These hazards include wood dust, particulates, and vapors, and in some cases represent an Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health (IDLH) situation. The purpose of this program is to ensure that the Department employees are protected from exposure to these respiratory hazards.
