With in the WHS act, reporting a serious incident includes:

"the failure of an atmosphere-supplying respirator"

The act should clarify the situation.

If for example the air tested through an atmosphere-supply respirator contains volatile hydro carbons nominally above acceptable levels, does this constitute a failure of the atmosphere-supplying respirator and trigger a report of a serious incident to WHS? or not?
