Respirator Awareness & Fit Testing Training
Choose a delivery method
Respirators are designed to offer protection when other controls are not feasible, in emergency situations, or to supplement other engineering or administrative controls. They are designed to reduce or minimize exposure or contact to chemical or biological hazards.
If respirators are used in the workplace, the employer is responsible for implementing a written respiratory protection program. Training is an essential element identified within such a program, and each user of a respirator must be properly trained to ensure that they have the ability to select and wear the respirator correctly.
