Respiratory protection training
Employees are required to wear respirators whenever engineering and work practice control measures are not adequate to prevent atmospheric contamination at the worksite. When employees must work in environments with insufficient oxygen or where harmful dusts, smokes, mists, fumes, gases, vapors, or sprays are present, they need respirators.
Training is essential for correct respirator use. Employers must teach supervisors and workers how to properly select, use, and maintain respirators - and we can help with this!
Our Respiratory Protection Trainings are designed to cover:
Why respirator use is necessary
Selecting the correct respirator for the application
Limitations, use, and fitting of the respirator
Cartridge change-out schedules (air purifying)
Inspection, cleaning and storage procedures
Requirements for confined space rescue and emergency services
How to use the respirator effectively in an emergency
How to recognize medical signs and symptoms that may limit or prevent the effective use of the respirator
