A program administrator had not been assigned to administer the respiratory protection program. 1910.134(0(3} A North chemical cartridge respirator was stored in the welding rod storage cabinet on the west wall. The respirator was not stored to protect it from damage, contamination, dust, sunlight, extreme temperatures, excessive moisture, and damaging chemicals, and was not packed or stored to prevent deformation of the face piece and exhalation valve. 1910.134(h)(2)(i) To be effective and to keep from introducing new hazards, respirators need to be stored in a clean container.
