Particulate Respirators and OSHA Fit Testing

Particulate Respirators and OSHA Fit Testing 

Sometimes, your job as a healthcare worker will require you to provide services to individuals who have infectious diseases. To protect employees from infectious diseases transmitted through the air, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OHSHA for short, requires your employer to maintain a respiratory protection program. This program will contain policies and procedures for the use of respirators to prevent exposure to airborne diseases. However, these devices can only protect you when properly worn. In this course, you will learn about the appropriate fit and use of particulate respirators. In addition to the guidelines provided in this course, you must also be familiar with and follow your organization’s specific respiratory protection program.
