Wearing Your Three-Panel Filtering Facepiece Respirator
- Step 1: Remove the respirator from its packaging and hold it with straps facing upward. Place the bottom strap under the center flaps next to the “WARNING” statement. Fully open the top and bottom panels, bending the nosepiece around your thumb at the center of the foam. Straps should separate when panels are opened. Make certain the bottom panel is unfolded and completely opened.*
- Step 2: Place the respirator on your face so that the foam rests on your nose and the bottom panel is securely under your chin. Pull the top strap over your head and position it high on the back of the head. Then, pull the bottom strap over your head and position it around your neck and below your ears. Adjust for a comfortable fit by pulling the top panel toward the bridge of your nose and positioning the bottom panel under your chin.*
- Step 3: Place fingertips from both hands at the top of your nose and mold the nosepiece around your nose to achieve a secure seal.*
- Step 4: Place one or both hands completely over the middle panel. Be careful not to disturb the position of the respirator. Inhale and exhale sharply. If air leaks around your nose, readjust the nosepiece. If air leaks between the face and face seal of the respirator, reposition it by adjusting the panels and straps.If you cannot achieve a proper seal, do not enter the contaminated area. See your supervisor.
