New Program Helps General Industry, Construction Employers Meet Respiratory Protection Training Requirements

J. J. Keller Offers Compliance Help For OSHA’s 4th Most Cited Violation

Neenah, WI - Respirators are employees’ last defense against breathing hazards. To help teach employees how to properly use respirators while helping employers meet training requirements, J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc. developed Respiratory Protection training.

“Respiratory protection training isn’t an option if workers can be exposed to respiratory hazards,” said Rayaz Qureshi-Chishti, J.J. Keller subject-matter expert. “Employers must provide competent training and ensure workers can demonstrate training knowledge. OSHA says training must be comprehensive, understandable, and recur annually or more if needed.”

Loaded with compliance tips and how-to demonstrations, this training program will train employees how to:

  • Identify workplace and engineering controls;
  • Recognize respiratory safety hazards;
  • Evaluate a respirator seal for fit;
  • Follow proper maintenance procedures; and
  • Select appropriate PPE.

Respiratory Protection training is available in four convenient formats to meet varying training needs: two-in-one English/Spanish DVD program and Video Training Book, and English and Spanish Pay Per View Videos and Online Courses. For more information, visit JJKeller.com/207127.
