Respiratory Protection

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1910.134(k)

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

Worksites with low levels of oxygen or with hazardous materials require the use of respirators. For some jobs, this means wearing a respirator at all times. Other workers may need to wear OSHA respiratory protection only during service/maintenance operations or in an emergency.

Respirator training ensures worker safety and prevents exposure to hazardous airborne pollutants and unsafe air quality levels. This respirator certification course provides a hazards overview, details the respiratory protection standard, and provides procedures for the proper use of respirators.

This course is for:
This OSHA respirator training is designed for anyone required by OSHA (or their employer) to wear respirators to protect them from occupational diseases. Such diseases are caused by breathing air contaminated with harmful dusts, fogs, fumes, mists, gases, smokes, sprays, or vapors. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives.

This online certification course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA for the Respiratory Protection Standard.

Governing Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OSHA regulations are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1910 covers general industry regulations. This online training course references the Respiratory Protection Standard, located in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134.

It will take a MINIMUM of 1.5 hours to complete this online course. The student may log on and off as needed. A bookmark will be set so when they log back in they will return to where they left off.

We have no restrictions on how long a person takes to complete a course. Likewise, if you are purchasing for others, we have no time limit on assigning courses. So you can purchase a larger quantity than you currently need and take advantage of volume discounts.

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to hazards such as contaminated air.

To ensure compliance with OSHA respiratory protection training, safety training must be conducted annually per OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134. Additional training is required when changes in the workplace or type of respirator render previous training obsolete, or inadequacies in the employee's knowledge of use of the respirator indicate the employee lacks the necessary understanding or skill to work safely. This OSHA respiratory training course meets these training requirements.

Each student will receive 0.2 CEUs (or 2 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.
