REA 1/2-Day Course
Respirator User Training
Respiratory protection is a key control measure to protect personnel from exposure to atmospheric hazards and airborne contaminants. Chemicals, microbes, both organic and synthetic non-microbial particles (i.e. wood or plastic dusts), and oxygen deficient environments require specific personal protective equipment when engineering controls are not possible or practical under the circumstances. It is critical that workers and employers understand the proper respirator type, use, and care required to maintain a safe environment.
