This webinar will discuss the practical aspects of a good Respiratory Program and help you understand when and where respirators are to be used, together with the right respirator for the hazard that employees are subject to within your work space.
OSHA mandates a respirator protection program. Any company that allows their employees to wear a respirator is required to have a written program for compliance. This includes both voluntary wearing and mandatory wearing.
This webinar will provide a good understanding of this regulation - 29 CFR 1910.134 - that is somewhat complicated. You will learn how you can implement an effective respirator protection program that will protect your employees from hazards of breathing toxicants of various kinds. It also is designed to give your employees the knowledge that you are considerate of their health both now and in the future. We will also discuss how you can avoid corporate and personal liability issues by ensuring compliance.
