Can employees wear safety helmets together with the full-face respirators?

When other Personal Protective Equipments (PPE) such as safety helmets, eye protectors, hearing protectors or protective clothing are used, care should be taken to ensure that the protection offered by the PPE is not compromised. Respirator selection should include an assessment of the effect of its use on other PPEs. Please see the Singapore Standard SS548:2009 Code of Practice for selection, use and maintenance of respiratory protective devices for more information.
