What is Respiratory Protection Week?

2022 marks the fourth year for NIOSH Respiratory Protection Week, however it first started back in 2012 with National N95 Day, and has since grown to include all forms of respiratory protection.

Respiratory Protection Week serves to not only recognize the importance of respiratory protection in the workplace, but it also acknowledges that our understanding and research surrounding respiratory hazards, as well as the equipment we use to protect ourselves from these hazards, is constantly developing.

It's a week for everyone to promote proper respiratory practices, share new findings, and update ourselves on the latest industry changes.

Below is a few ways you can join us and get involved this year:
