Show me the Answer
Correct answer is:
  • (C)  Only if the manufacturer’s recommended procedure is as rigorous and effective as OSHA’s.
Explanation:
OSHA lists procedures for employers to follow when cleaning respirators. These procedures are general in nature. The employer may, as an alternative, follow the recommendations provided by respirator’s manufacturer, provided that this procedure is as rigorous – and as demonstrably effective – as those provided by OSHA.
