  • N95 Facemask International Health Standards

    "It's called an N95 because it filters 95 percent of particulates: physical pieces floating in the air," explained Parker. Surgical masks, on the other hand, provide barrier protection against droplets including large respiratory particles.


    "N95 type respirators are the respirators recommended by the Government of Canada and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for use by health care workers in contact with patients with infections that are transmitted from inhaling airborne droplets (e.g., tuberculosis (TB)," writes the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health And Safety.

    The CDC says similarly on its website that "surgical masks are not designed for use as particulate respirators and do not provide as much respiratory protection as an N95 respirator." If you never used 1 before, they arent much use other than big things. If you have time get some and try 1 at home. If you can find a dusty area and spend some time with it on.

      What we are hearing several times a day is that thorough hand-washing either with soap and water or with an appropriate gel is the best defense against getting sick. A mask may make you feel more confident, but it is not really going to help.

        Anyone - particularly someone who has only one post - who pops up offering masks or any type of medical equipment for that matter should be viewed with caution and skepticism. Lots of scammers trying to take advantage of folks at the moment.

          N95 face mask respirators effectively filter out a minimum of 95 percent of airborne particles. However, they’re not resistant to oil. N95 respirators are ideal for environments where non-oil-based hazards are present, like construction, mineral processing, and other dust-laden workplaces. At Enviro Safety Products, it’s our mission to help you protect your employees from airborne hazards, so we’ve compiled a huge selection of breathing protection at extremely affordable prices. If you’re not sure which N95 face mask is right for your workplace, feel free to browse our product descriptions

            N95 respirators and surgical masks (face masks) are examples of personal protective equipment that are used to protect the wearer from airborne particles and from liquid contaminating the face. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) also regulate N95 respirators.

              The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend that the general public wear N95 respirators to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including coronavirus (COVID-19). Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for health care workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

                An N95 respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles. The 'N95' designation means that when subjected to careful testing, the respirator blocks at least 95 percent of very small (0.3 micron) test particles. If properly fitted, the filtration capabilities of N95 respirators exceed those of face masks. However, even a properly fitted N95 respirator does not completely eliminate the risk of illness or death.

                  An N95 respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles. Note that the edges of the respirator are designed to form a seal around the nose and mouth. Surgical N95 Respirators are commonly used in healthcare settings and are a subset of N95 Filtering Facepiece Respirators (FFRs), often referred to as N95s.
