Program Administrators are challenged by the impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic. How do we maintain our programs when we are now dealing with respirator shortages, social distances requirements, dwindling fit testing supplies, challenged and changing workforces, confusing temporary regulations, incorrect fit testing programs and ever-changing workplaces? OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134 (c) – 1910.134(c)(3) – states that the employer shall designate a program administrator who is qualified by appropriate training or experience that is commensurate with the complexity of the program to administer or oversee the respiratory protection program and conduct the required evaluations of program effectiveness.
In this webinar, we will discuss how it has never been so important to incorporate OSHA’s hierarchy of controls and a occupational risk-based hazard control program into your respirator protection programs.
- Identify administrative components that are required for employers to establish an occupational risk based approach to respiratory protection programs in accordance with 29 CFR 1910.134(c).
- Identify COVID related limitations in respirators protection used in healthcare workplaces for aerosolized infectious disease applications, reuse and extended use of Filtering Facepiece Respirators.
- Identify the requirements for personal protective equipment in accordance with 1910.132.
- Evaluate multiple technologies and COVID related changes that are necessary to conduct qualitative and quantitative fit testing in accordance with Appendix A.
- Identify how the Respiratory Protection Standard interacts with other OSHA standards in your respiratory protection program.
