Risk of strap tear in BYD N95 respirators

Safer Care Victoria has advised that reports have been received from other jurisdictions of small tears occurring when pulling/adjusting the headband straps through the staple points on BYD N95 respirators.

These small tears at the staple entry point are not always noticeable, but may compromise the integrity of the respirator seal.

Safer Care Victoria has sought clarification on this matter from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
