Respiratory protection

The head is at the top of the human body and is where the brain and sensory organs are located, and it must be adequately protected.

Respiratory protection

Respiratory protection

Respiratory protection devices protect the user’s respiratory system from inhaling hazardous atmospheres, due either to the presence of dangerous substances (particles, gases or vapours, biological agents) or to a lack of oxygen.
