It is the policy of the University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis to provide its employees with a safe and healthful work environment. The guidelines in the respiratory protection program are designed to help reduce employee exposure against occupational dusts, fumes, mists, biological, radionuclides, gases and vapors. The primary objective is to prevent excessive exposure to these contaminants. This is accomplished as far as feasible by accepted engineering and work practice control measures. When effective engineering controls are not feasible, or while they are being implemented or evaluated, respiratory protection may be required to achieve this goal. In these situations, respiratory protection, training and medical evaluations are provided at no cost to the employees.
