Grade D Air and OSHA

Grade D Compressed Air Testing and OSHA

Breathing air products according to Occupational Safety and Health Standards OSHA 1910 “In any workplace where respirators are necessary to protect the health of the employee or whenever respirators are required by the employer, the employer shall establish and implement a written respiratory protection program with worksite-specific measures”.  Part of that program is to periodically test the compressed air quality to OSHA Grade D.  Compressed air for breathing can be used in a variety of different applications including automotive paint booths, welding, sandblasting, aircraft manufacturers, chemical plants,  or general industry.

Breathing air products and respirators should meet or exceed CGA Grade D or OSHA 1910.134 requirements.  TRI offers reliable 24 hour results, online air testing lab reports via your MyAir account, and excellent customer service. Our Compressed Air Sampling Equipment was developed to capture a non-pressurized sample of compressed breathing air.
