Respiratory Protection Program in the Time of COVID-19
The current pandemic has brought uncertainty to every aspect of our personal and professional lives. It has also challenged how occupational safety and health professionals establish workplace controls including questions about respirators and their respiratory protection program. The CDC recommends the use of face coverings but should they be considered in a respiratory protection program? What are the differences in face coverings for healthcare workers and your employees? Since N95s are being reserved for frontline workers, will the KN95 provide the same level of protection? What respirators should your company use?
The scope of this webinar is to present an overview of the challenges presented by the pandemic to the requirements of a respiratory protection program.
