Who is responsible for the cost of the respirator?
Your department is responsible for the cost of any personal protective equipment (PPE) that is required for your job. In most cases where a respirator is required, a half mask air-purifying respirator (APR) is the appropriate PPE. UC will provide a respirator that has been fitted to you during the annual fit test.
Although ANR-EH&S only issues half-mask air-purifying respirators, Centers and Extension offices may choose to accommodate employees by issuing other types of respirators including full-face and loose fitting powered air-purifying respirators.
