The aim of this study was to assess the effects of work conditions on the acceptability and efficiency of respiratory protective devices (RPD). The subjective evaluation of comfort, protection, respiratory and visual constraint, and the acceptable duration of wear of six RPDs against dust was achieved by 30 workers during their actual work. Metabolic rate was evaluated for each worker, and dry and wet air temperatures measured in the work area. RPDs objective protection factor was measured… CONTINUE READING
