Breathing Air. The provision of breathing air to be used by a person in the execution of a work related task is controlled by certain legal requirements and standards:-

  • The personal protective Equipment Regulations 2002 (SI 2002/1144)
  • BS EN 529:2005 Respiratory protective Devises
  • COSHH Regulations 2002
  • EH40 “Occupational Exposure Limits”
  • BS EN 12021 “Respiratory protective devices – Compressed air for breathing”
  • DefStan 68-284/3

All of the above standards make reference to BS EN 12021 which is now the only standard to indicate contaminant levels for breathing air both in the UK and in the EU.
