Respiratory protection is a mustPosted on 29/04/2013
Respiratory protection is vital for certain DIY and construction jobs. If you don't use the right protection you can risk getting a respiratory infection which can affect other aspects of your life and can be with you for a long time.
Respiratory protection should be worn whilst you are performing any activity that creates dust. This will stop you breathing the dust in and it then settling in your throat and lungs. If you are doing jobs that require you to use electric sanders, drills, circular saws etc. make sure that you - and anyone else in the vicinity - are wearing respiratory protection.
There are several types of respiratory protection available and some are better suited to particular jobs. If in doubt as to which is the best one for you to use, seek professional advice. It's always better to have some form of respiratory protection rather than none.
