The N95 NIOSH TGA Approved Surgical Particulate Respirator is personal protective equipment (PPE) used in healthcare settings to protect workers from airborne particles and pathogens.
The respirator is designed to filter out at least 95% of airborne particles, including bacteria and viruses, and meet the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) standards for respirator effectiveness. It is also approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia.
The N95 respirator differs from a surgical mask, which provides only a barrier for droplets and does not provide as much protection against airborne particles. The N95 respirator fits tightly to the face and requires a proper fit test to ensure that it is providing adequate protection.
A full-face respirator is personal protective equipment (PPE) used in industrial and healthcare settings to protect workers from inhaling harmful substances, such as chemicals, gases, and particulate matter. It covers the entire face, including the eyes, nose, and mouth, providing a barrier between the worker and the hazardous substance.
