PDH STAR is pleased to add the OSHA Repiratory Protection training course, a convenient online training in compliance with 29 CFR 1910.134 OSHA standard.
Why take this course?
When employees must work in environments with insufficient oxygen or where harmful dusts, fogs, smokes, mists, fumes, gases, vapors, or sprays are present, they need respirators. These health hazards may cause cancer, lung impairment, other diseases, or death.
Where toxic substances are present in the workplace and engineering controls are inadequate to reduce or eliminate them, respirators are necessary. Some atmosphere supplying respirators can also be used to protect against oxygen-deficient atmospheres. Increased breathing rates, accelerated heartbeat, and impaired thinking or coordination occur more quickly in an oxygen-deficient or other hazardous atmosphere. Even a momentary loss of coordination can be devastating if it occurs while a worker is performing a potentially dangerous activity such as climbing a ladder.
The training is based on OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134 and applies to general industry, construction, shipyard, longshoring, and marine terminal workplaces.
The course includes a downloadable Study Guide and other useful references.
At the end of the course, following a successful completion of the test, the student can immediately download the Certificate of Completion. The trainee is also eligible to receive the wallet size training card that can be ordered here.
Who Should Take the OSHA Respiratory Protection Course?
Training is essential for correct respirator use. Employers must teach supervisors and workers how to properly select, use, and maintain respirators. All employees required to use respiratory protective equipment must receive instruction in the proper use of the equipment and its limitations. Employers should develop training programs based on the employee’s education level and language background.
This training is aimed towards any employee or manager in a workplace environment where respirators are used on a mandatory or voluntary basis.
