Respirators: When Do I need a respirator? OSHA 1926.1101 follows.

You MUST use a respirator for Class 1 work without regard to the negative exposure assessment. So you didn’t generate a single fiber or a fraction thereof? For Class 1 work, U still need a respirator! Which respirator to use is predicated on the MUC and the expected fiber count! U may not need a respirator for the other classes of work under 1926.1101 (Class 2,Class 3, and Class 4.

Class 1 is the removal of thermal system insulation and surfacing materials. The Asbestos Supervisor must ascertain what the counts are expected to be prior to the job start and select the proper respirator for the expected fiber count.
