Here is my take:
* We maintain respirators in our survey vans (full face).
* Every RP Tech and OSC member is required to be mask fitted and
respirator qualified (including the survey van driver) to be on the ERO.
* The respirator does offer protection that COULD be used in lieu of
restricting access for FMT due to DAC or iodine and COULD preclude
So I don't see us making a change but I am curious in other responses.

Power Net Users,
Looking for feedback from sites that do NOT utilized Respiratory Protection for
their Field Monitoring Teams. I am beginning to pull together a Position paper
on this topic and would love to hear from other utilities that have traveled
Currently, the Exelon Nuclear utilities do NOT have their FMTs use respirators
and I am reaching out to see if others in the nation have followed.
You can contact me personally at the number below if needed.
