It should be combined with company-specific training on the employer's Respiratory Protection Training Program.
Employees must be trained on the specific respirators that they will be expected to use.
Employees who use respirators as part of their job must receive refresher training on the use of their respirators at least once every year.
Workers must receive additional training, when required by Federal, State, or local regulations, on the specific hazards of their job.
Additional training in the use of any personal protective equipment or clothing used as part of emergency response is required and should be provided by your employer.
Training Providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training supplied by his or her employer. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company-specific training should be well documented.
The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
