During the training, the participants will also get an overview of the California general-industry respiratory protection standard.
Offered through e-learning mode, this course fulfils the training regulations as mentioned in Cal/OSHA Title 8 CCR, Section 5144 Respiratory Protection Safety Standard.
Respiratory hazards, which present in various work environments, can be dangerous and sometimes be fatal. Dangerous pollutants in the air can cause severe respiratory problems and asthma and dust particles and poisonous gas, which can be odorless, can be unsafe. Though there are quite a few incidents of injuries and fatalities due to respiratory hazards in work environments, there are some regulations which have been made to prevent workers from such hazards. This course precisely addresses the kinds of hazards workers have to deal with and safety measures to reduce the risks and overexposure. This course also deals with applicable legislations and laws for both employers and workers and compliant procedures. The training includes the propagation of details pertaining to the California standards with respect to occupational respiratory risks and protection standards.
Who Must Take this Course?
It is the responsibility of the employers to keep the workplace clean and healthy following all necessary protocols. Workers who are exposed to highly dangerous atmosphere where they stand to get exposed to unhealthy air should join this course. Employers should also ensure that all workers are adequately informed about the possible atmospheric hazards and the health implications in case of accidental exposure. Apart from understanding the nature of hazards which depends on industries, workers should also undergo regular review of their knowledge and expertise to deal with workplace hazards and upgrade their skills and knowledge on new risks and hazards, improved protective equipments such as ventilators and effective preventive measures. As usage of respirators has been strictly regularized, employers who seek to use respirators for their workers must have a written respiratory protection program.
