Mobile Health Helps CDC and NIOSH Recognize Respirator Safety Awareness

n95logo2016On Wednesday, New York based national occupational healthcare provider, Mobile Health, confirmed its new partnership with the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to celebrate N95 Day.

Now in its fourth year, N95 Day is celebrated this year on September 6th.

Referring to the filtering facepiece respirator, the N95 in N95 Day is used in a wide array of industries such as construction, healthcare, gardening, and more.

Starting at the end of August, Mobile Health will celebrate N95 Day and the days preceding it by mounting social media awareness campaigns and making CDC and NIOSH resources available for download on the Mobile Health website.

N95 Day is part of a wider initiative to help people recognize the importance of respiratory protection in the workplace.

“Because N95 respirators are so important to the health and safety of workers in so many different industries, and because there is more to know about this personal protective device than just when to slap one on,” NIOSH explains, “we have dedicated a day to the promotion, celebration, dissemination, and proclamation of N95 information.”
