Have the rulings changed? 
I have recently presented a lecture in our program about laboratory safety,
and one of the students' assignments included finding out, in their own
labs, what PPE's were available/required for certain tasks.
One of the students wrote that respirators are not available in her lab, and
that the supervisor told her that they are no longer required -- respirators
of any kind, for any task. Surely, I haven't missed a change that
Any of you safety "gurus" out there know anything about all this? I'd sure
like some input, and will pass along whatever new information you have to
the students in the training program.
Thanks in advance,
