      I liked his article, my only disagreement was about whether it is easier to breath through a half mask vs. a disposable - small point.

        Jason we use half face with the 3M 2091 or 97's Breathing is easy and sure beats the disposable because they get all sweaty and become very hard to breath through when wet.

        We just finished a job and did our best to follow RRP. I'm well aware a half mask is required to be fitted to ensure proper fit but who the hell does that along with a medical check up. That's why it's nearly impossible to abide by the rules 100%. Besides I know how to fit a gas mask and it's no different than fitting a dust mask.

          I am exempt from doing everything OSHA says because I have no employees, but I don't agree with going around what you are supposed to do; I try to follow what they say but I would be doing things differently if I had employees. If your lungs can't handle the added strain of wearing a respirator, you can be in trouble. And I am not saying that you don't know how to fit a mask but if you have someone working for you and it doesn't fit, their health is in your hands. For me, it is in my own hands.

          But I do agree that half masks are much easier to breath through, almost like not having one on. I really like my 3M 7500 Series - easy to use and clean. My only problem was when I would wear it for 10 hours at a time that the bridge of my nose looked like a tomato and was sore, but those were long days.
