Respiratory Protection Program

Palomar College Respiratory Protection Program:

The purpose of the Environmental, Health & Safety (EH&S) Respiratory Protection Program is to protect Palomar Community College District (PCCD) employees and students from health hazards. Respiratory protection is to be used only if engineering control, substitution, administrative control or a combination of such controls is not feasible or adequate to control a potential or identified inhalation hazard. This program will provide a systematic process for implementation, and fills the requirements of the OSHA Respiratory Protection Rule, 29 CR 1910.134.


Palomar College Respirator Standards:

If you need a respirator, contact EH&S at or submit the Respirator Request Evaluation Form.
