MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "Respiratory Protection and Safety" Videotape Program has been specifically created to involve employees in the process of understanding respiratory hazards and to help facilities in fulfilling OSHA's Respiratory Standards (29 CFR,1910.103, 134) training requirements. The Videotape includes OSHA and NIOSH changes to their Respiratory Protection Training Requirements, such as fit testing protocols and cleaning/disinfecting procedures. The Videotape Program shows examples of the "N" class respirators and other respirators being used in a variety of settings. One of the problems with many respiratory hazards (such as fumes or gases) is that employees can not easily "see" them. Even more visible hazards, such as dusts, are often accepted as part of a "normal" work environment. As a result, many respiratory problems only become clearly evident well after the original exposure. Yet once they occur, most respiratory problems are "chronic" and long lasting.
Areas covered in the program include how the respiratory system "works", common types of respiratory problems, potential effects of respiratory hazards, causes of respiratory problems, good respiratory safety practices, respiratory safety equipment, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.Respiratory Protection Safety Video Excerpt:
In today's world we encounter more airborne contaminants than ever before. That's why in the United states alone more than 5 million workers wear respirators on the job. Still over 66,000 suffer severe exposure to airborne contaminants each year, which can lead to blindness, lung damage, cancer, asbestosis, and other serious illnesses. Because of the severity of these problems the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has created a regulation to protect workers from respiratory hazards. The regulation can be found in 29 CFR 1910.134. One of the things the regulation stresses is learning about respiratory hazards. They fall into three major groupings. Dust, Mist, and Fumes. Gases and Vapors. Oxygen deficiency and temperature extremes. Dust, mist, and fumes are tiny particles that were once part of a larger mass. Later they became separated from their parent substances and became airborne. Dust is produced when solid objects are broken down into fine particles. You can see this in woodworking, crushing, and grinding processes. Mist is made up of droplets that are suspended in the air. These are created when pressurized liquids are sprayed.
