Respirators are required when you have a task that has proven to be above the recommend PPM trace gas analysis. I've only seen that once in umpteen years. Usually a hood is fine. If you have concerns you should always do another badge analysis. Wearing a respirator all day is not an option in my book. 
Happy weekend!
