The Mine Safety Appliances (MSA) Advantage 3100 Full Face Respirator was used in the field in a configuration not approved by the manufacturer and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. The use of unapproved configurations of respiratory protective equipment can lead to ineffective protection to workers.

Lesson Learned: Ensure employees only use respiratory protective equipment in the approved configuration without variation. When work sites requiring respiratory protection are transitioned between contractors, ensure all respirator mask and filter configurations are reviewed.
