[ RadSafe ] Efficiency of Workers Wearing Respiratory Protection

It seems logical to assume that a worker doing a job wearing respiratory 
protection would be slower than the same worker without respiratory 
protection.  However, I can't find a reference in a peer-reviewed 
publication to support this assumption.
Does anyone have a reference "in their back pocket" or can anyone point me 
in the right direction?
