Review our white paper for guidance about developing a robust, resilient, and sustainable PPE stockpile program.
From shelf life to cleaning and counterfeit issues, here are some things to consider when thinking about the quality of the respirators you may be selecting and using.
While disposable respirators look similar to masks used during surgery and other medical procedures, the two are designed for very different purposes.
If you’re responsible for managing inventories of personal protection equipment, you should be aware that most disposable respirators have a limited shelf life, after which they should no longer be used.
At 3M, we can help you partner with organizations that can help you dispose of your aging or expiring disposable respirator stockpiles in an environmentally friendly manner.
