Important points in using N95 mask :

The use of N95 masks is priority for employees with a higher risk of infection..Follow the manufacturer's recommendations regarding the use or non-use of N95 masks. Some factories do not allow the reuse of masks, and some have only allowed this under the condition of compliance with infection control principles.

If the manufacturer does not have a specific recommendation, the decision to use or not reuse the mask is the responsibility of the experts (infection control committee).I

Experience has shown that in non-medical institutions (such as industries, etc.) N95 masks have maintained their performance with eight hours of continuous or intermittent use.Although the long-term or repeated use of the N95 mask may have economic benefits, its possible losses should not be overlooked.

The main risk of repeated or long-term use of the N95 mask is transmission of infection due to touching the contaminated mask. Studies have shown that nurses touch their face, eyes or mask 19 times on average in a shift.
