Requirements of OSHA’s respiratory protection standard, 29 CFR 1910;134, can be overwhelming for even the most seasoned safety professionals. The challenges include changing procedures for respirator use to fit testing, employee training, and developing a site-specific respiratory protection program. On top of these concerns, every industry, such as healthcare, general industry, construction, and emergency response each has its own unique concerns and needs. These concerns can include hospital decon teams, reuse of filtering facepiece respirators during pandemic events, construction sites, and emergency response to CBRNE incidents.
