Respirators are critical equipment on many jobs but if the fit isn’t right, they may not help at all. Fit-testing is required annually and before a respirator is used on a job or whenever a different face piece is used. Be sure your workers know how to fit test their apparatus properly. This safety training program video, offered by Electrolab Training Systems, illustrates the different types of respirators, what they are used for and how to fit them correctly to maximize their protective qualities. Topics covered include: oxygen deficient and contaminated atmospheres, supplied air respirators, air purifying respirators, respirator selection, fit test and fit check. The video is produced by Coastal Training Technologies in Virginia Beach, VA.
