September 16, 2020
2:00–3:45 PM Eastern Daylight Time
This webinar will focus on the content of a Respiratory Protection Program required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in 29 CFR 1910.134 (Respiratory Protection Standard) and identify the most common pitfalls of a Program as indicated by OSHA citations. The OSHA Respiratory Protection Standard is consistently identified as one of the top 10 most frequently cited standards.

The most frequently cited requirements of the Respiratory Protection Standard from the past year and one-half will be discussed and information provided on how to avoid these common citations. This webinar is intended to assist the attendee in improving their Respiratory Protection Program, providing for better worker protection through a more effective and compliant respiratory protection program.

What is an ACGIH® Webinar?
ACGIH® is dedicated to providing quality, scientific, educational events. One method of doing this is to offer distance-learning webinars. A webinar, short for Web-based seminar, is a presentation, lecture, or seminar that is transmitted over the Internet. A key feature of a webinar is its interactive elements — the ability to give, receive and discuss information. Webinars are as effective as on-site presentations without the travel expense. This ACGIH® webinar is 1.75 hours in duration and consists of a live presentation given via the Internet with an audio telephone link similar to that of a conference call.
