Voluntary Respirator Use – How To Keep Programs And Policies In Compliance
|Date / Time:
OSHA has always required a comprehensive respiratory protection program for employees exposed or potentially exposed to air contaminants above the permissible exposure levels (PELs). And you're already aware of those operations where respiratory protection is required and have developed the appropriate program to assure compliance.
But what about operations where PELs are not exceeded, such as when employees ask to wear respirators and you permits it, or when your policy requires respirator use for specific operations? Understanding the subtle differences involved in these situations is important to assure complete compliance. Does your existing program satisfactorily address them?
Join us for this webinar and you'll learn:
- The requirements for a traditional Mandatory Use Respirator Protection Program
- Potential voluntary respirator use situations
- How to judge them
- The components and best practices that a program needs to be compliant
- The common pitfalls such programs face, and how to document your program
- Overview of a Mandatory Respiratory Protection Program

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
