Face Masks When Cutting Pavers

So working on some safety on our jobsites. Found ear protection and safety glasses but looking for face masks when cutting pavers. Anybody know of any good places to find these. I didn't like the throw away dust masks, would like to find something re-usable and each guy on the crew will have one whether he wears it or not. Spending a day just cutting pavers and breathing that in just can't be good for the lungs.

Use a tile saw with water. Masks are a pita simply because they fog up the glasses.

Why not a paver saw with water? Tile saws are usually under powered
