Create your written and enforced respiratory protection program
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION PROGRAM CONSULTING
When employees are exposed to respiratory hazards during the course of their work, employers need to address the potential health risks of that exposure. Proper respiratory protection will protect against contaminated air in the workplace environment, including harmful dust, fogs, fumes, mists, gases, smokes, sprays, or vapors. Respiratory protection must be provided by the employer if employees are at risk of such exposure and are not controlled by other safety programs such as engineering or administrative controls. We help employers develop respiratory protection programs that guard the health of employees and limit their liability.
