The Importance of PPE and Respirators

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and respirators are important to use when working on any construction or painting project. If you're working with water-based paint in a properly ventilated area, it hardly seems worth the trouble to use a respirator.

Respirators should always be worn by painters in environments with reduced air quality, especially if sanding or the use of solvent-based paints are involved.There are two types of PPE respirators: atmosphere-supplying for providing clean air and air-purifying which removes harmful chemicals from the air. The type of mask you will need depends on the nature of the job.What Do Respirators Protect?A tight-fitting "half-mask" that covers the nose, mouth, and face...painter wearing a respirator while sanding wall to prepare for painting project
