Personal respiratory protective equipment
La protection individuelle des voies respiratoires. [in French]
After a diagrammatic classification of the chief respiratory hazards and the corresponding type of protective equipment required, the author defines the criteria to be satisfied by the facepiece: seal, comfort and visibility, dead space, freedom from respiratory impairment, existence of an expiratory buffer chamber, rapidity of fitting, robustness and service life, ease of maintenance. Details of 2 main groups of personal protective equipment follow: air-purifying respirators functioning by mechanical, physical, chemical, or catalytic filtration, and atmosphere-supplying devices, self-contained or hose-type. A table in conformity with the German industrial standard DIN 3181 gives references, colours and fields of application of filter cartridges.

CIS 75-1998 Programming personal protection - Eye and face.
"The finest eye and face protection equipment is worthless if it is carelessly prescribed or is not worn", and this article (the first in a series exploring personal protection) sets out to ensure optimum conditions in this field. The 6 points of the relevant general industrial standards of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHAct) are first summarised, with details of additional regulations in OSHAct standards. These standards are at present under review. The need for greater efforts on the part of industry and the unions to make eye protection effective is also stressed, and a suggestion that employees should be penalised for not complying with standards is reported. Vision protection programmes are analysed, and the experience of a successful programme reviewed. A table showing the recommended optimum protection measures according to the operation is included.
