Respiratory Protection Program

EH&S evaluates workplaces for possible airborne hazards and recommends ways to reduce these hazards when found. When appropriate, EH&S will fit campus workers with respirators and provide annual training on their proper use. This program is administered in cooperation with University Health Services. UHS evaluates a person's ability to safely wear a respirator prior to a respirator being issued. For more information contact Roy Waller at (510) 642-6885 or r_waller@berkeley.edu.

Do not buy, borrow or wear a respirator without contacting EH&S first!
