Handbook for CBRN Respiratory Protection Available from NIOSH
A new NIOSH publication presents technical information about respiratory protection from chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear hazards, as well as guidance on selection, use, and maintenance of CBRN respirators and requirements for CBRN respiratory protection programs. The Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Respiratory Protection Handbook is intended primarily for fire departments, law enforcement, emergency medical services, corrections officers, and other organizations that use CBRN respirators during emergency responses. The information in the handbook is also potentially useful to other organizations where CRBN respirator use is necessary. The publication is available on NIOSH's website.
