In order to address an urgent PPE shortage, an interdisciplinary team worked to develop solutions to ensure the ongoing protection of workers. This included developing a novel product that can be used to adapt filtering facepiece respirator material to be used as an elastomeric half-mask respirator cartridge. Engagement with occupational hygiene researchers and local health and safety leaders proved to be essential in this process.
