OSHA Respiratory Protection Awareness (TRN Safety Alert)

From Cliff Gerbick, ASP (The Reserves Network Director of Safety)

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has published a series of videos which will help employers understand the OSHA Respiratory Protection Standard (29 CFR 1910.134). The videos, available in both English and Spanish, provide information that employers can use to determine their individual needs as required by the standard.

As always, employers are required to, when possible, eliminate hazards through Engineering Controls and Administrative/ Work Practice Controls. In the event the hazard cannot be eliminated or controlled through those methods, the videos walk employers through the steps they need to take to protect their employees from respiratory hazards.

The videos cover the following topics:

  • Respirator Protection in General Industry
  • Respirator Protection in Construction
  • Respirator Types
  • Respirator Fit Testing
  • Maintenance and Care of Respirators
  • Medical Evaluations for Workers Who Use Respirators
  • Respiratory Training Requirements
  • Voluntary Use of Respirators
