Respiratory Protection

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.
