Help your facility comply with basic requirements in this latest OSHA Respiratory Standards course. Each year, tens of thousands of U.S. workers are exposed to harmful airborne contaminants. These noxious gases, dusts, vapors and biological pathogens can cause lung damage, cancer and other serious illnesses. Some can quickly cause loss of consciousness and even death, often without warning. To avoid these hazards in your business, workers need to understand the risks associated with airborne contaminants, as well as the government regulations and safe work practices that can protect them. Microlearning topics covered: the need for a Respiratory Protection Program, respiratory basics and disposable masks, air-purifying respirators and filter types, atmosphere-supplying respirators including SARs and SCBAs, fit testing a respirator, wearing a respirator, and more.
