A correctly fitting respirator is essential for ensuring the safety and well-being of individuals who work in environments where airborne hazards exist.
Respirators are designed to protect the wearer from inhaling harmful substances such as dust, fumes, vapours, and gases that can cause respiratory problems and other health issues.
Position the respirator in the palm of your hand with the nose strip at your fingertips, ensuring both head straps are untwisted over the back of your hand.
Open both the top and bottom panels of the mask and make a bend in the foam nose seal. Place the lower panel under the chin and the upper panel with the foam nose seal over the nose bridge and underneath the eyes.
Holding the respirator with one hand, position the top untwisted head strap to the crown of the head.
Draw the lower untwisted head strap up and over the face to below the ears and back of the neck.
DO NOT CRISS CROSS HEADSTRAPS.
With both hands, mould the foam nose seal at the top of the mask to the nose bridge and cheeks ensuring a secure fit and seal.
Perform a fit check (see fit check list below). Cover the front of the respirator with both hands. Inhale and exhale sharply.
The respirator may be contaminated. Touch only the head straps when removing.
Pull the bottom strap over the top of the head.
Pull the top strap over the top of the head.
Dispose of respirator into the appropriate waste receptacle in accordance with site infection control and prevention policies.
Wash and sanitise your hands thoroughly.
NOTE: To achieve an optimum facial seal, the wearer should be clean-shaven. It is recommended the wearer be fit tested prior to use in accordance with AS/NZS 1715: 2009 and/or onsite requirements. Training on the safe use and limitations of the disposable face mask must be performed in accordance with AS/NZS 1715: 2009 section 2.4.

A P1 disposable respirator will filter mechanically generated particles (for example, grinding, cutting, sanding and drilling). A P2 disposable respirator will protect against mechanically and thermally generated particles (for example, welding fumes, fertiliser and bushfire smoke).
It is essential to ensure the mask is correctly fitted to achieve the best results, this can be done by having your respirator fit tested by an accredited fit tester.
Fit testing can be performed on-site with specialised PortaCount testing equipment by our own RESP-FIT accredited fit testers or by one of our preferred fit test partners.

A valved mask is typically used in the Industrial space and will provide less breathing resistance when exhaling and also reduces heat and moisture build-up inside the mask. Note that a valved mask only filters particles going into the mask and not the air leaving. An unvalved mask will filter particles entering and exiting the respirator. The unvalved RTCFFP2 TRIDENT® product comes with a level three fluid rating (160 mmHg), making the RTCFFP2 TRIDENT® P2 unvalved mask a preferred option in the health industry.

The TRIDENT® body protection range is designed specifically for Australian conditions with Australian workers front of mind. The highly breathable, water and tear-resistant fabric provides workers with the ultimate protection. Designed and manufactured to meet the highest level of certification, the TRIDENT® disposable body protection range is suitable for the asbestos, mining, oil and gas industries. Select from a wide range of product options, colours and sizes.
Proper fit is essential for comfort and tactility (or movement when wearing coveralls). It is worth the time required to physically measure the worker’s height. The packaging on the TRIDENT® coveralls includes a height chart /size fitting guide for reference.
This guide does not always account for possible variations in the size and shape of each worker. If in doubt select one size larger than needed, this is better than choosing a smaller size and not being able to use it. Most importantly, make sure the coveralls can be zipped up fully and gloves fit comfortably over the cuffs of the coveralls and around the wrists.
This depends on how the coveralls were used. If the coveralls have been contaminated with a toxic compound, dangerous particles or biomatter that are covered by disposal regulations, the coveralls and other PPE used must be handled in the same way as the toxic material and/or in line with individual site requirements for toxic, contaminated, or infectious waste. If they have not been contaminated, please follow the guidelines for responsible disposal of the coveralls and all packaging in accordance with the instructions provided on the product packaging.
No. Disposable coveralls are designed to be used for one time only. Coveralls cannot be washed. Washing changes the protective (or barrier) capabilities of the fabric and may no longer be effective.
Disposable coveralls are designed to be used for one time only. Industree Group do not recommend disposable coveralls to be used more than once. Please dispose of the coveralls in accordance with the instructions provided on the product packaging.
Key considerations when selecting suitable coveralls include:
• The type of work that will be done while wearing the coveralls.
• The hazards present in the work area (incl. their physical state e.g. liquids, gaseous, dust, solid compounds).
• Is the work environment hygiene critical?
• The temperature and humidity of the work environment.
• Does the material need to be chemical or flame resistant?
• What other PPE will be used with the protective coveralls in the job task? Do they fit well together to form a holistic protective ensemble?
Note – if unsure, it is important to discuss your protection requirements with a product expert and consult with the site safety manager (HSE etc) and/or hygienist as to the potential risk and threats present prior to purchasing protective coveralls. The wearer’s safety and well-being must be the prime consideration when selecting any PPE. Statutory and/or regulatory requirements may apply to your workplace.
