Respiratory Protection Program: What OSHA’s Looking for and How to Protect Against New Hazards

The revised Respiratory Protection standard went into effect over 20 years ago, replacing the standard that was adopted in 1971, and still it is one of the most cited standards by OSHA. In fact, in fiscal year 2020, it was the third most cited standard. The COVID-19 pandemic brought the standard and its requirements to the forefront since respiratory protection was the first line of the defense against the virus. Why the standard is still highly cited? What are the most cited sections within the standard?  
The scope of this webinar is to present an overview of what a compliance officer may look for when evaluating compliance with the respiratory protection standard and how your program it can protect employees against today’s hazards and those in the future.
