Respirators are required when employees must work in environments with insufficient oxygen or where harmful dusts, smokes, mists, fumes, gases, vapors, or sprays are present.  Working in these environments without a respirator creates a serious health hazard for the employee which may cause cancer, lung impairment, heart disease, other diseases, or even death.

Respirators are among the most important pieces of protective equipment for working in hazardous environments.

Many assume the objective of a fit test is face piece sizing. Although this is a very important element of fit testing, the primary reason to fit test an individual is to verify that he or she has been trained to wear a respirator and has, in fact, learned how to put on the facepiece correctly. If a person does not know how to use the equipment, the respirator will be less effective, regardless of whether or not it is the right size.

Topics include:

  • A review of OSHA's respiratory protection standard 29 CFR 1910.134
  • Hazards requiring the use of a respirator
  • Medical evaluation requirements
  • Respirator types and selection
  • Respirator seal check and fit testing
  • Inspection, cleaning, and storage of a respirator
  • How to properly don and wear the respirator

Course Length: 4 Hours

Course Fee*: $149 (Members $105)

IMPORTANT NOTE ON FIT TESTS: Fit tests can be done as a part of this training, individuals must bring a completed medical evaluation signed off by a licensed medical professional and the respirator(s) used on the job. Must be cleanly shaven to provide quality seal and fit of the mask. Please alert us that you would like to be fit tested when you register. If any of these requirements are not met, we will not conduct the fit test.
