3M™ Reusable Respirator Care and Maintenance
3M™ Reusable Respiratory equipment requires regular checks and maintenance to ensure optimum performance and protection for the wearer.
In addition to potentially reducing protection levels, poor maintenance can also reduce the effective lifetime of the equipment, resulting in the additional cost of replacement.
Guidance on the appropriate checks is provided in the instruction booklets with each new item.
The Care and Maintenance posters make this information accessible on a day-to-day basis and are a strong visual reminder.
The maintenance of respiratory protective equipment (RPE) is a legal requirement under the COSHH Regulations (2002), which states that RPE should be regularly tested, inspected and maintained in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
