Profile of activities of the Laboratory

The fundamental activities of the Laboratory are to conduct scientific and research work related to:

  • development of methods of testing and criteria for assessing respiratory  protective equipment,
  • analysis of the phenomena occurring during the use of respiratory  protective equipment, creation of a database of experience used for the development of new protective equipment and principles of the correct choice and safe use and storage of such equipment.

The respiratory  protective equipment that is developed for hazards and working conditions, as well as their safe use, storage and maintenance based on the research work is popularised by means of:

  • training materials for education purposes in the OSH area ,
  • written and verbal consultation for users, OSH inspectors, employees and manufacturers of respiratory system protective equipment,
  • all-round consultations to work places in recognising and eliminating or limiting the hazards that appear there by the correct choice of respiratory  protective equipment,
  • publications related to occupational safety and health.

Furthermore, the laboratory undertakes standardisation work to introduce the European standards into the set of Polish standards on respiratory system protective equipment.
