Respiratory Protection Training Course (4 hr.)
OSHA 29CFR 1910.134 — Respiratory Protection Training Certiﬁcation.
This course covers the requirements for the establishment, maintenance, and monitoring of a respiratory protection program.
OSHA states that employers are required to provide respiratory protection training to workers who wear respirators on the job, at least every 12 months. This annual retraining will refresh your memory on the information and skills you need to use a respirator correctly. It gives you a chance to practice with a respirator and to ask questions and discuss worksite-specific respirator use with your instructor. A respirator can’t protect you if you don’t know how to use it properly.
This course satisfies the training requirements for the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134 — Respiratory Protection Training Certiﬁcation
Course topics include:
• Why you need to use the respirator; • what the respirator can and cannot do to protect you; • how to properly inspect, put on and take off, and use your respirator; • how to check the seal of your respirator (also called a “user seal check”); • how to use the respirator effectively in emergency situations; • how to recognize medical signs and symptoms that may limit or prevent you from using a respirator; • how improper ﬁt, usage, or maintenance can reduce your respirator’s ability to protect you; • procedures for selecting respirators; • medical evaluations; • fit-testing procedures; • what the procedures are for cleaning, disinfecting, storing, inspecting,and maintaining respirators; • general use of ﬁltering facepiece respirators (disposable); • air purifying Respirators (APR), supplied air respirators (SAR), powered air purifying respirators (PAPR), self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and their assigned protection factors.
