Description:MARCOM's "Respiratory Protection
and Safety" Video Program has been specifically created to involve
employees in the process of understanding respiratory hazards and to help
facilities in fulfilling OSHA's Respiratory Standards (29 CFR,1910.103,
134) training requirements. The Video includes OSHA and NIOSH changes
to their Respiratory Protection Training Requirements, such as fit testing
protocols and cleaning/disinfecting procedures. The Videotape Program
shows examples of the "N" class respirators and other respirators
being used in a variety of settings. One of the problems with many respiratory
hazards (such as fumes or gases) is that employees can not easily "see"
them. Even more visible hazards, such as dusts, are often accepted as
part of a "normal" work environment. As a result, many respiratory
problems only become clearly evident well after the original exposure.
Yet once they occur, most respiratory problems are "chronic"
and long lasting.
Areas covered in the program include how the respiratory
system "works", common types of respiratory problems, potential
effects of respiratory hazards, causes of respiratory problems, good respiratory
safety practices, respiratory safety equipment, and more. The Video
Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling
& Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training
