The importance of proper respirator fit

  • 3M Disposable Respirator worn while using a saw

    A respirator can’t give workers all the protection it was designed to provide, unless it is selected and worn correctly during all periods of exposure. That’s why 3M uses a variety of innovative technologies and features designed to enhance user comfort. Disposable respirators require a good seal between the respirator and face to deliver the expected protection.
