The Respiratory Protection Program follows the latest requirements for providing workers with personal protective equipment against exposure to hazardous and toxic airborne contaminants. This program is designed to provide information and instruction upon the proper use, care, inspection, cleaning, repair, and storage of respirators. It is to be implemented with OSHA standard 29 CFR §1910.139 (respiratory protection). This written program satisfies the OSHA requirement that employers must adopt written standard operating procedures governing the selection and use of respirators.
This program comes in a PDF document format and can be easily edited to fit your company’s specific requirements.
Topics covered include:
- Training of all employees required using respiratory protective equipment;
- Fit-test instructions including practice on how the respirator should be tested and worn;
- An explanation of various types of respirators and how they work; and
- A Respiratory Training Record.
