The practical implementation of respiratory protection in a large scale industrial setting was investigated. Respiratory protection programs at the Kennedy Space Center, Norfolk Naval Shipyard, and International Business Machines Research Triangle Park were assessed for compliance with Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1910.134. The assessment was based on employer response to questionnaires, interviews, and personal observations. The data obtained provided an opportunity to discuss the difficulties of applying complex guidelines and regulations in a large scale industrial setting.
