    It is not necessary if you have a CSTD; only for cleaning up spills in which a PAPR is not required and we also use an N95 if having to mix a crushed pill (by pharmacy) in for example apple juice

    Do you have any information on if N95 is recommended even if using CSTD?  Looking for any evidence to demonstrate necessity of n95 to my employer.
