Labor and Industries Respirator Program

Labor and Industries Respirator Program

L & I has released a template for a respirator program for LTC. This template is for editing and use by long-term care facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. It doesn’t address respirator use for chemicals exposures-just COVID-19. For any other type of workplace, use and adapt the standard template, Written Respiratory Protection Program Template & Guide.

This template covers only the use of filtering facepiece respirators (e.g. N95s, P100s) approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) or by an equivalent approval body from outside the United States. If you will use half- or full-facepiece elastomeric respirators equipped with air-purifying cartridges, or any other type of respirator, please use the standard template linked above.
