Respiratory Training and Fit Testing Program

Training, and fit-testing, is required annually of each person who wears a respirator plus everyone who supervises those who wear respirators.

 

Topics covered include:

 

  • Respirator selection, inspection and use
  • Typical hazards and their health effects
  • Respirator capabilities and limitations
  • Selection and service life of cartridges
  • Inspection, donning, seal check procedures, and correct use of the respirators your employees use
  • Proper maintenance and storage
  • Regulations concerning respirator use
  • Fit-testing or training in how to fit-test

 

We can also train your supervisors in how to train their employees!

 

Annual Employee Training and Fit Testing

  • Respirator capabilities and limitations
  • Inspection, donning, seal check procedures, and correct use
