Respiratory Protection: The employer must assess site-specific conditions for potential respiratory contaminants and protection.
Sanitation and Hygiene: In addition to PPE, proper sanitation and hygiene are essential for minimizing the spread of contaminants and disease. Handwashing is a critical component of good hygiene. In the absence of suitable facilities, workers should be provided with hand sanitizer.
