Workers can be exposed to a variety of chemicals and hazardous materials in the workplace. Employers are required to protect their workers by developing and implementing effective control measures. Respiratory protection can be used to minimize or prevent a worker’s overexposure to airborne chemicals and hazardous materials.
However, for respiratory protection to be effective it must be properly selected, sized and fit tested for each individual worker and workers need training in the limitations and correct use of the respirator they are provided. Respirators must be properly maintained and must be able to form an effective seal with the wearer’s face.
We also offer fit testing training.
