OSHA Respiratory Protection Training (2 Hour)
If your workplace requires employees to wear respirators, it is essential to get the proper training to ensure safety and avoid exposure to hazardous airborne pollutants. OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) estimates that correct respirator use saves hundreds of lives and prevents thousands of respiratory illnesses each year, including cancers and a range of diseases.
Who Needs to Get Certified for Respiratory Protection?
Respirator use is common across multiple industries and necessary at any time where working conditions create unsafe air quality levels. For some jobs, this means wearing a respirator at all times. Other workers may need to wear protection only during service and maintenance operations or in an emergency. Whether for regular use or occasional wear, users are required under OSHA Standard 9 CFR, Part 1910.134 to complete an approved respiratory protection training course — and get certified — to stay compliant.
OSHA Compliant Respiratory Protection Certification
This course is compliant with OSHA 9 CFR, Part 1910.134 guidelines, and broken down into simplified modules that make using respiratory protection easy to learn. These modules are viewable as PowerPoint slideshows, and each one covers subject material you need to know to be safe at work, compliant with OSHA standards and get certified for respiratory protection. Our respiratory protection training course covers a wide range of subjects, including:
- Respirator identification: Identify the types of respirators, understand their capabilities and know when they are necessary.
- Respirator use: Learn how to use respirators for regular use, service and during emergencies, and how to respond to malfunctions.
- Respirator care: We will show you the importance of proper fit, care, storage and use, and how they affect respirator performance and longevity.
- Respirator wear: Get to know the proper methods for inspecting and wearing a respirator, checking the seals and removal to prevent contamination.
- Respirator limits: This course outlines the different signs, symptoms and medical conditions that could interfere with wear and limit respirator effectiveness.
If conditions require employees to wear respirators, OSHA requires that employers establish a respiratory protection program to provide training, equipment and support. Our respiratory protection training course lists all the components you need to create and implement an approved program.
