OSHA Respirator Safety Videos

Contributed by Eric Tofte, Director of Training, Evergreen Safety Council
On January 8, 2010, OSHA announced that they developed two new videos for healthcare workers that feature training and guidance on respirator safety.

OSHA's "Respirator Safety" video demonstrates how to correctly put on and take off common types of respirators, such as N95s. "The Difference between Respirators and Surgical Masks" video explains how they prevent exposure to infectious diseases.

Respiratory protection has been and always will be important. We have seen time and time again how respiratory hazards, such as silica and asbestos – just to name two – cause severe injury and death. So if your employees are exposed to respiratory hazards it is imperative that they are protected from respiratory hazards.
