AS/NZS 1715:2009: Selection, use and maintenance of respiratory protective equipment
1.5.17 Disposable respirator
A respiratory protective device for which maintenance is not intended and which is designed to be discarded after excessive resistance, sorbent exhaustion, physical damage or end of service-life renders it unsuitable for use.
1.5.42 Minimum Protection Factor (MPF)
The level of respiratory protection that an item of properly functioning respiratory protective equipment (RPE) or class of RPE would be expected to provide to properly fitted, and trained users in the workplace when used in accordance with the manufacturer’s information and instruction. The MPF takes into account all expected sources of facepiece penetration (e.g. face seal protection, valve leakage).
188.8.131.52 Smoke mask
The smoke mask is RPE intended to be used only for a short time, e.g. escape from fires. It is not intended as a substitute or replacement for SCBA apparatus or for routine use by workers. This RPE provides protection against particulates, such as dust or smoke, and low concentrations of carbon monoxide. Additional protection is
provided against other gases commonly encountered in building fires. The smoke mask may be built into a simple hood made of impervious flame-retardant material.
Smoke masks should only be used where the foreseeable contaminant concentrations and exposure time during escape will be within the capacity of the filter to protect the user.
The filtering elements are particularly sensitive to damage by exposure to moisture and shall be kept sealed until use. Regular inspection is required to ensure that the RPE is still sealed and has not been affected by moisture. During use the temperature of the inhaled air increases and can become uncomfortably hot.
No MPF has been set for this RPE.
