The difference between a face mask and a respirator or What is respiratory protection?
The article entitled "Not a respirator like a respirator" was published in the No. 11/2020 of the 112 Magazine, and the authors tried to bring the issue of respirators closer to the general public or to draw attention to some marketing practices. At the same time, the verification procedures according to the American standard (so-called Fit Factor) with certification testing of respirators according to the European standard were presented. Finally, they quoted from the website of the Research Institute of Occupational Safety, VÚBP, on testing of imported respirators.
Therefore, on behalf of VÚBP, as the Notified Body No. 1024 for assessing conformity with the requirements, for example also for respirators, the author makes few additional observations to the published article. All the more so that the subject of our common interest is the appropriate protection of members of the FRS CR.
