Written Respiratory Protection Plan

Written Respiratory Protection Plan for store

OSHA requires employers to develop and implement a written respiratory protection program when employees are required to use respirators to protect against exposure to certain airborne contaminants.

Total Medical Compliance has developed a plan to assist healthcare providers in addressing the risk associated with exposure to airborne transmitted diseases such as COVID -1 9.

This written plan meets the requirements listed in the Respiratory Protection Standard 1910.134 and supports practices/facilities implementing air-purifying respirators listed below who will utilize qualitative fit testing with either Saccharin or Bitrex.

  • Filtering facepiece respirator (FFP)
  • Elastomeric half facepiece respirator
  • Loose-fitting or tight-fitting powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR)

Several key elements are addressed in the plan

  • Process for respirator selection through the hazard assessment process
  • Medical evaluation prior to use of a specific respirator
  • Fit testing and the appropriate use of respirators
  • Training requirements
  • Checklists for implementation, fit testing and documentation forms

The written program is supported by a live and on-demand webinar to help with customization and implementation.
