Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) is essential in protecting people from harm in almost every professional industry. From Manufacturing to Agriculture, Healthcare to Construction, RPE is used to prevent potentially harmful hazards in the air from impacting your health.
While front-line healthcare professionals will likely need to use RPE for protection primarily against airborne pathogens and respiratory infections; other staff in the healthcare sector behind the scenes may need RPE for other purposes too, such as handling chemicals or using toxic cleaning agents.
