Colleagues, Is anyone aware of a variance given to police officers for their use of respirators. This variance would enable them to use these devices without compliance of the respirator protection standard as well as the medical monitoring requirements. I heard an urban legend that one does exist and may be through "POST". I have been working closely with our officers and their PPE for homeland security (APR respirators). I am working on their training, implementation of a program, and medical requirements. I spoke with CAL OSHA Compliance and they had not heard of such a variance and would hold the employer to this standard if visited for an inspection. Any info would be appreciatted Regina M.
