In the United States, an estimated 5 million workers are required to wear respirators in 1.3 million workplaces. Respirators protect workers against insufficient oxygen environments and airborne contaminants that may cause serious disease or even death. This training shows workers how to work safely when airborne hazards are present.
The importance of using respiratory protective equipment is emphasized by first considering the damage that can result from either breathing airborne contaminants or oxygen deficiency. Step-by-step instructions are presented for selecting an appropriate respirator. Next, learners are shown how to determine and ensure the proper fit. Finally, the importance of regular inspection and proper storage of a respirator are considered.
- Identify respiration hazards
