Masks and Beards

What is the best way to use a resprator mask with a beard, to get it to seal fully. I just don’t want to breath in too many of those fumes.

Shave your beard. According to CalOSHA, you are not allowed to have a beard if you need to wear a respirator. Mustaches are OK as the seal goes over your nose.

Thats what I was thinking I would have to do. Thanks

If you don’t shave I’ll have to send OSHA out.

Easy, this is only my second time glassing. Plus there are some stairs around that don’t have handrails on them. So far I have kept it hidden but I think OSHA might be on to me.
