Respiratory Protection Program

The Respiratory Protection Program provides elemental components to support respiratory protection.

The Program

Nova Scotia Health aims to control airborne contaminants through accepted engineering and administrative control measures. When effective engineering controls are not feasible or adequate, or while they are being implemented, or are shut down (for maintenance/repair or in case of emergency), appropriate respiratory protection is to be used. The respiratory protection program provides elemental components to support respiratory protection.
