A special note about respirator sizing: there is NO size chart or guideline available for sizing respirators. The only true way to tell if a respirator fits properly is to conduct a respirator fit test (in addition to a fit check - this is two different things). If you are uncertain about this, you should ask your employer - they are supposed to provide respiratory protection training and fit testing. Also, please note, anyone using a respirator should have a doctor's approval - after all, your lungs do the work in pulling air through the filters!
