The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is a federal agency that conducts research and makes recommendations to prevent work-related illness and injury. NIOSH-approved personal protective equipment (PPE) safeguards employees against inhalation of toxic, airborne contaminants.
But why does the PPE have to be NIOSH-approved? That’s because only NIOSH-certified and FDA-approved PPE are effective as they are made from the proper filter material and provide a tight fit to prevent air leaks.
There are several retailers and suppliers who sell NIOSH PPE online, but you have to be careful. In the last few months alone, authorities have taken action against companies selling fake or counterfeit respirators and other protective equipment that claimed to be NIOSH-certified.
Why Choose NIOSH-Approved PPE
Personal protective equipment is in huge demand right now due to the coronavirus outbreak, but PPE includes more than gloves and masks. A wide range of PPE is available to workers in construction, medical, chemical, and other industries to protect against safety hazards that include chemical spills, sharp materials, toxic fumes, workplace noise, low visibility, and even falling objects.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), any masks used in workplaces where workers must wear PPE must be NIOSH-certified. Failure to comply with this regulation can lead to hefty penalties as well as imprisonment of the employer. To be sure your PPE is actually approved by NIOSH, check the certified equipment list or approval markings.
