2) How to spot a counterfeit! Understanding the Misrepresentation of NIOSH Approval
Join us on September 10, 2020 at 12:00 EDT to learn about how to identify NIOSH-approved respirators and signs for spotting counterfeit respirators.
Counterfeit respirators are products that are falsely marketed and sold as being NIOSH approved and may not be capable of providing appropriate respiratory protection to workers. In this webinar, we will look at how to identify a NIOSH-approved respirator as well as signs that a respirator might be a counterfeit. We will also discuss some of the respirator counterfeit issues we have observed over the last several months.
