9/5 = N95 Day

Tomorrow, 9/5 has been designated by NIOSH (the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) as N95 day.

The purpose of N95 day is to raise awareness concerning respiratory protection and to increase “workers’ knowledge of on-the-job respiratory safety and protection”.

NIOSH estimates that some 20 million people who need to be protected from airborne particles, aren’t.

From the CDC website:

N95 awareness day activities include: a live webinar with NIOSH professionals discussing respirator preparedness in the healthcare setting, an online blog, Pinterest-ready infographics, tweets throughout the day (#N95Day), as well as a twitter chat with NIOSH N95 respirator experts. The twitter chat (#N95Chat) will touch upon various industries as the panel of experts discusses best practices for using this type of respiratory protection while taking questions from participants.

You can read more about N95 day on the CDC website.
