Safety Diploma Course

Cal/OSHA Training Certification


In this course, we focus on developing and implementing a viable respiratory program that goes well with California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA) standards. The education program provides essential training to learners to gain expertise in extending respiratory protection to workers who are dealing with healthcare services to humans and animals or work in an environment which can cause health hazards through unprotected respiration.

Governing regulations

This online training course has been developed to satisfy the training guidelines for Cal/OSHA Title 8 CCR, Section 5144 & 5199 Respiratory Protection Safety Standard.

Course Overview

Those who are doing this course will get familiarized with some of the provisions of the HMR. The training modules are prepared to make workers effectively handle, pack, mark, label, placard and transport hazardous materials through various transport means. We will also discuss about the security needs mentioned in the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR), and provide guidance and suggestions to meet those safety requirements.

Who Must Take this Course?

Employees who are working in the healthcare environments where they face various health hazards due to airborne chemicals, poisonous gases, airborne microorganisms or byproducts of humans and animals can join this course. These workers can get various respiratory ailments and need proper awareness and education to protect them. Employers of Hospitals and other human and animal healthcare centres have moral and legal obligations to provide protective work culture for workers against respiratory and other airborne diseases.

Course Format

Our Cal/OSHA Respiratory Protection for Healthcare Safety Training has good quality training materials such as well-researched content, graphical and audio presentations for effective learning and a huge question bank for better preparations for students before the final exam.

Candidates upon successful completion are provided with a hard copy of completion certificate and can print a wallet card.
