    Three cheers for safe breathing.

    Happy N95 Day! NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) created N95 Day to celebrate and promote workplace respirator safety.

    • Workman wearing 3M™ Disposable Respirators N95

      This event falls on September 5 every year, and we celebrate by providing the N95 respirator community with educational materials promoting the proper use and selection of N95 respirators.

      Celebrate respirator safety with us. Take a few minutes to ask some questions about your respirator safety – we’ll get you started:

      • Is it time for a new respirator?
      • Do you need a refresher on performing a user seal check?
      • Are your colleagues properly donning their respirator?

      Reach out and spread the safety. The efforts you make on N95 Day can have a positive, lasting impact on your health and others in your workplace for decades to come.
