Facial Hair

Make sure your employees know the rules about facial hair. Not only will facial hair interfere with your workforces’ safety, but it is also a direct violation of OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134(g)(1)(i), which states, “The employer shall not permit respirators with tight-fitting facepieces to be worn by employees who have: Facial hair that comes between the sealing surface of the facepiece and the face or that interferes with valve function, or any condition that interferes with the face-to-facepiece seal or valve function.”

Facial hair that lies along the sealing area of a respirator - such as beards, sideburns or bushy mustaches - will interfere with respirators that rely on a tight fit. The rule does allow some forms of neat, trimmed facial hair as long as it does not interfere with safe respirator operations. For example, small tidy mustaches or beards bordering the mouth of the employee are acceptable forms of facial hair. 

Ensure that whiskers are tidy and trimmed for the respirator fit test and everyday respirator use. Clean-shaven employees are necessary every day, not just for fit testing day. Use the following graphic as a guide for acceptable and nonacceptable facial hair for employees that wear respirators.
