Workers on site only occasionally for a specific limited task (such as, but not limited to, ground water monitoring, land surveying, or geophysical surveying) and who are unlikely to be exposed over permissible exposure limits and published exposure limits.

Workers regularly on site who work in areas which have been monitored and fully characterized indicating that exposures are under permissible exposure limits and published exposure limits where respirators are not necessary, and the characterization indicates that there are no health hazards or the possibility of an emergency developing.

For new employees as part of the employer's safety and health program, for employees exposed to health hazards or hazardous substances at treatment, storage, and disposal (TSD) operations to enable the employees to perform their assigned duties and functions in a safe and healthful manner so as not to endanger themselves or other employees.
