Respiratory Protection Programs have become increasingly popular and necessary in occupational health and safety due to the ongoing risks of exposure to chemical, biological and/or infections agents in the workplace. Respiratory Protection Programs apply to numerous workplace industries, such as police services, healthcare, manufacturing and construction. In fact, any worker who may be exposed to a hazardous airborne contaminant measuring above an allowable occupational exposure limit is required to wear respiratory protection.

This one-hour course outlines the suggested elements for a Respiratory Protection Program and the appropriate strategies to implement a successful program. Workers will learn how to properly select, use and care for respirators to help ensure their safety against biological, chemical or infectious agents.
