3M Quick Reference Guide that Addresses Cal/OSHA Rule

3M respirator 6000 series with organic vapor cartridges

3M published this Quick Reference Guide to Respiratory Protection from Wildfire Smoke Inhalation in July of 2019 to help address the recently passed Cal/OSHA rule. (3M is a major manufacturer of safety equpment, including respirators.)

Per 3M, if you choose to use a reusable respirator with a combination organic vapor and P100 cartridge, (which we think sounds like a very good idea), you could consider a 6000-series respirator (6100/small, 6200/med, 6300/large) and the #60921 cartridge. We've also seen some other respirators that seem to provide similar capabilities.)
