New Hampshire Respiratory Protection: What you need to know
New Hampshire does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program for the state; therefore, private sector workplaces must comply with federal occupational safety and health standards.
The state has adopted its own respiratory protection rule for public sector employers (state and local government agencies) in general industry workplaces that is substantially less comprehensive than the federal rule.
The U.S. Department of Labor/Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers and enforces federal workplace safety and health requirements in private sector workplaces. The New Hampshire Department of Labor/Safety and Training Division administers safety and health rules for public sector workplaces.
Public Sector-Respiratory Protection
NH Regulations-Labor 1403.47
Respirators must be selected by the employer on the basis of the hazard to which the worker is exposed and must be provided by the employer as necessary to protect the health of the workers.
Employees who are expected to use respirators must be fit tested to ensure that an adequate face piece seal can be maintained.
Supervisors and workers must be instructed in the selection, use, and maintenance of respirators.
Respirators must be cleaned and disinfected, inspected during cleaning, and deteriorated parts must be replaced.
Respirators for emergency use must be inspected at least once a month and after each use.
When not in use, respirators must be stored in a clean and sanitary location.
