This course covers information relating to respiratory hazards, protection mechanisms, and safe work practices. It also includes information on how to use respiratory protection for protection from hazardous airborne contaminants in the work environment. This course does not include the types of respirators and other protective considerations required when working with ionizing radiation. Fit testing of certain types of respiratory protective equipment (RPE) is a legal requirement in the UK and can only be carried out practically in situ. Learner objectives are to recognise why respiratory protection is necessary; distinguish between employee and employer responsibilities for respiratory protection; identify the nature, extent, and effects of respiratory hazards to which you may be exposed; specify the operation, limitations, and capabilities of respirators; identify respirator selection procedures and practices; specify proper respirator use and inspection practices; recognise proper respirator maintenance, cleaning, and storage practices; and identify respirator malfunction and follow-up procedures. This course was developed with subject matter expert support by DEKRA - Global advisors for safety testing, consulting, inspection and certification. Please note, the course materials and content were current with the laws and regulations at the time of the last expert review, however, they may not reflect the most current legal developments.
