RPE: Effective Protection From Respirable Diseases At WorkEnsuring your teams and contractors are provided with (and using) Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) correctly is a key step to safeguard from occupational related respiratory diseases such as Asbestosis and Silicosis. To prevent exposure to dust, the
FFP1 masks contain the least amount of filter material so provide the least breathing resistance. An exhalation valve is often not required. FFP1 masks can protect against brick dust, cellulose, cement, coal dust, gypsum, limestone, Plaster of Paris, pollen and sugar. This type of mask should filter a minimum of 75% of the substance.
Filters used in air purifying respirators must be suitable for the type of air contaminant you are protecting against. The filter in an air purifying respirator is designed to protect from dusts, aerosols, fumes or gases. Filters may be built into the respirator or come separately and can be changed.
Sundström Filter to usea SR316 or SR295 is to be used. These are suitable for use against ammonia vapour. The K1 Filter. How can we help?

Asbestos testing is important because if asbestos fibres become airborne and are inhaled, the lungs cannot expel them, leaving the asbestos fibres embedded in the tissue. If this exposure continues over a long period of time, serious health problems can result such as scarring of the lung tissue and even various forms of cancer.
One of the greatest risks to human health from airborne fibre exposure is from respirable asbestos fibres, which penetrate deep into the lungs and can accumulate throughout a persons life. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) coupled with EDS or Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy analysis allows examination of fibre morphology to identify asbestiform fibres and x ray analysis to characterise the

Craig Evans outlines the importance of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) when it comes to handling asbestos. Asbestos removal can be extremely costly. In February this year, a primary school in Birmingham was faced with a bill for £1,000,000 following the removal of asbestos from their premises by contractors.
In order for a filter to be certified HEPA, it must be tested and proven to filter particles as small as 0.3 microns to 99.97% efficiency at its designed air flow. To understand what this type of filter does, it helps to understand what a micron is. A micron is 1 millionth of
