How do supplied air, loose-fitting respirators eliminate excessive spending, safety issues and downtime? Keeping employees safe can be a huge expense to your company. But when you consider what’s at stake, human lives and life’s best moments, personal safety is invaluable. The good news is, it doesn’t mean that protecting your employees will stifle your business, because if you choose the right protection, it will also eliminate excessive spending, safety issues and downtime. This way, safety becomes an investment that earns a return.
Supplied air respirators provide compressed air through an airline, filter and flow control device to your respirator. Other types of respirators include powered air purifying respirators (PAPR) which utilizes a motor, battery and a fan to draw air through a small filter mounted on the operator’s hip or back, and negative pressure respirators which require the wearer to breathe to filter the air.
