One of the biggest decisions a spray foam company or owner/operator faces is choosing the breathing systems used by their spray foam crews.
Use of this type of system isn’t optional—you are legally required to have a respirator program in place. It is the employer’s responsibility to make sure that operations are safe for applicators and anyone that may be exposed to spray foam chemicals.
You want to make sure you are meeting your obligations, of course, but you also want to choose the system that will work best for your particular operation, and one that will meet your needs while also allowing your employees to work efficiently and comfortably.
