Oregon OSHA has issued Wildfire Smoke and Outside Work Activities Guidelines for employers who have employees working outside during air quality events created by the wildfires.

For OSU work and/or academic studies that take place outdoors, check the Air Quality Index (AQI) https://www.airnow.gov/ or http://oregon.envi-das.com/home/map

Statewide AQI Map:

If the AQI is above 150, please consider rescheduling the work or activity, if feasible, to a time when the air quality improves. If the work or activity cannot be rescheduled, N95 or alternative filtering facepiece respirators must be provided in accordance with Oregon OSHA guidelines.

Contact [email protected] to obtain a respirator.

See the Respiratory Protection Program for additional information.
