Respiratory Protection Program

The purpose of the Respiratory Protection Program (RPP) is to comply with provisions set forth in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134 Respiratory Protection to provide respiratory protection to prevent exposure to hazardous airborne contaminants while performing work, research, or other assignments at the University of Virginia (UVA).

The RPP covers all UVA divisions and departments except units whose leadership adopts RPP specific to their operations (e.g., Facilities Management, UVA Health System). The RPP covers UVA employees who wear respiratory protection during their assigned duties on or off Grounds. Examples include employees involved in research, the arts, makerspaces, parking and transportation shops, the libraries and support of the Athletics Department.
