Respiratory Protection Program

Florida Tech is committed to the protection of University workers from occupational hazards, including the potential health risks associated with exposure to airborne contaminants.

When effective engineering controls are not feasible, or while they are being instituted, appropriate respiratory protection must be used. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including respirator protection, is normally the last resort in minimizing the hazards of airborne contaminants.

Individuals who require respiratory protection must contact the EHS Office at to enroll in the Florida Tech Respiratory Protection Program as outlined by OSHA's Respiratory Protection Standard. 


Special Note 1:

Personnel are not permitted to wear a respirator until they have successfully completed enrollment into the program. Doing so violates federal law. 

Special Note 2:

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is the responsibility of the individual department to cover their assigned personnel.
