Respirator Recommendations: Up to 100 mg/cu m:

Assigned Protection Factor (APF) Respirator Recommendations
APF = 10 Any air-purifying half-mask respirator with organic vapor cartridge(s) in combination with an N95, R95, or P95 filter. The following filters may also be used: N99, R99, P99, N100, R100, P100.
APF = 50 Any air-purifying, full-facepiece respirator (gas mask) with a chin-style, front- or back-mounted organic vapor canister having an N100, R100, or P100 filter.
APF = 25 Any powered, air-purifying respirator with an organic vapor cartridge in combination with a high-efficiency particulate filter.
APF = 10 Any supplied-air respirator.
APF = 50 Any self-contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece.

Respirator Recommendations: Emergency or planned entry into unknown concentrations or IDLH conditions:

Assigned Protection Factor (APF) Respirator Recommendations
APF = 10,000 Any self-contained breathing apparatus that has a full facepiece and is operated in a pressure-demand or other positive-pressure mode.
APF = 10,000 Any supplied-air respirator that has a full facepiece and is operated in a pressure-demand or other positive-pressure mode in combination with an auxiliary self-contained positive-pressure breathing apparatus.

Respirator Recommendations: Escape:

Assigned Protection Factor (APF) Respirator Recommendations
APF = 50 Any air-purifying, full-facepiece respirator (gas mask) with a chin-style, front- or back-mounted organic vapor canister having an N100, R100, or P100 filter./Any appropriate escape-type, self-contained breathing apparatus.

Eye/face protection: Face shield and safety glasses Use equipment for eye protection tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or EN 166(EU).

Skin protection: Handle with gloves.

Body Protection: Complete suit protecting against chemicals, The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.

Respiratory protection: Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face particle respirator type N100 (US) or type P3 (EN 143) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).

Personnel protection: ... Wear appropriate chemical protective clothing. Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus. /Phenoxyacetic Acid Derivative Pesticide, Liquid, Flammable, Toxic/ /Phenoxyacetic Acid Derivative Pesticide, Liquid, Toxic/ /Phenoxyacetic Acid Derivative Pesticide, Liquid, Toxic, Flammable/ /Phenoxyacetic Acid Derivative Pesticide, Solid, Toxic/
