     acceptable criteria.


8.2 Personal Protection

     Where air contaminants can exceed acceptable criteria, use NIOSH/MSHA
     approved respiratory protection equipment.  Respirators should be
     selected based on the form and concentration of contaminants in air
     in accordance with OSHA laws and regulations or other applicable
     standards or guidelines, including ANSI standards regarding
     respiratory protection.
