What is dependent breathing protection?
Dependent breathing protection is a type of respirator that protects you from airborne pollutants through a filter. This type of respiratory protection is also referred to as 'filtering respiratory protection' and is intended for situations where the concentration of pollutants does not exceed the limit value. An example of dependent respiratory protection is a dust mask.
When is dependent breathing protection needed?
Dependent breathing protection is needed when you work in an environment where harmful substances are present. You can think of situations where there are:
- Fabric, such as when sanding wood or mixing cement
- Gases, such as when welding or working in confined spaces
- Vapours, such as when using solvents or paints
In such situations, using dependent breathing protection is very important to protect your health.
How does dependent breathing protection work?
Dependent respiratory protection works through a filter that filters harmful substances out of the air before you breathe it in. A dust mask is an example of this. This type of respiratory protection depends on the concentration of harmful substances in the air.
When this concentration exceeds the limit value, dependent respiratory protection no longer provides adequate protection. In that case, the use of independent respiratory protection is necessary.
Independent respiratory protection
So, in addition to dependent breathing protection, there is also independent breathing protection. An example of independent respiratory protection is a breathing apparatus with an airline system, where the user is independent of the ambient air.
This type of respiratory protection is mainly used in oxygen-deficient environments, or where there are hazardous gases or vapours that cannot be filtered with dependent respiratory protection.
Independent breathing protection provides optimal protection, but is often less flexible and can be heavier to carry.
Why use dependent breathing protection?
Using dependent respiratory protection is very important to protect your health. Inhaling harmful substances can lead to serious health problems, such as respiratory problems, respiratory tract irritations, and lung diseases.
By using dependent breathing protection, you can minimise these risks and work safely.
Which dependent respirator is right for you?
The type of dependent breathing protection suitable for you depends on the situation you are working in and the harmful substances you are exposed to. It is important to know what harmful substances are present in your working environment so that you can choose the right respiratory protection.
