CSE SR 100 Self-contained Self-rescuer Phase-out

Graham Marshall - Wednesday, July 04, 2012

Users of the CSE SR-100 self-contained self-rescuer (SCSR) are on notice by NIOSH in the USA of a schedule for phasing out use of the device in mining and non-mining applications.

This action follows the April 16, 2012, publication of the NIOSH Technical Report, Loss of Start-Up Oxygen in CSE SR-100 Self-Contained Self-Rescuers.

Continued use as a respirator in non-mining applications is contingent upon phase-out of the CSE SR-100s and replacement of these respirators by a different NIOSH-approved respirator as described in

Continued use of these devices in underground mines is contingent upon implementation of the phase-out schedule for the devices described in MSHA Program Information Bulletin (PIB) No. 12–09.
