All Beacon’s Safety Seminars are free to policyholders.

The objective of this training seminar is to provide employers with the background and theory for developing and implementing a Respiratory Protection Program. Attendees will understand what is involved in complying with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Respiratory Protection Standard, 1910.134. Participants will learn who is covered by the Act, and the general requirements of the Act.

Topics include:

  • Respiratory Standard, 1910.134
  • Respiratory Selection, Care, Inspection, Use, and Storage
  • Medical Evaluations and Appendix D
  • Fit Testing
  • Training of Employees

This seminar will review the different forms of respiratory protection devices, different levels of protection offered by the devices, evaluating employee exposure levels, and more. It is designed for companies that: currently have employees wearing respiratory protection devices, may require the use of respirators by employees in the future, or are unsure whether or not employees should be wearing respiratory devices.

In addition, you will leave with an understanding of how to determine if this regulation applies to your facility, and a basic understanding of the tasks that must be undertaken to achieve and maintain compliance.
