Respiratory Protection

The purpose of the written Respiratory Protection Program is to establish uniform administrative procedures and minimum requirements related to respiratory protection.

Lehigh's policy is to control employee exposures to air contaminants through the use of engineering controls, ventilation technologies, and the substitution of less toxic materials. Respirators are required when the above control measures are not feasible or are being installed, in emergencies and when the exposure to air contaminants is likely to exceed an OSHA permissible exposure limit (PEL) and/or an action level (AL).
