Smoke and Air Quality Advisory for Workers

Health and Safety Resource Library

June 15, 2023 Workshop

Wildfire smoke creates health hazards, especially for vulnerable groups. In this video, Marina Jabsky, an industrial hygienist at NYCOSH, explains the EPA’s Air Quality Index, and makes recommendations for each level of the Index. She also describes what workers can do to protect themselves (including the use of respirators), and what employers can do to provide a safe and healthy work environment.
