If you work in a hazardous atmosphere, you’re at risk every day of illness, injury, and even death if you don’t know about and use the proper respiratory protection. This course covers the situations that require respiratory protection, everyone’s responsibilities under the Respiratory Protection program, and ways to select the proper respirator and breathing air system. In this module, we will outline a set of guidelines for the selection of respiratory protection equipment, situations for its use, and training in the use of the respirator required.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
outline the roles and responsibilities of offshore employees and contractors in the Respiratory Protection Program,
recognize the conditions or situations that require respiratory protection, and
