  • Discuss regulations and action levels to ensure health and safety of the workers.
  • Discuss fundamentals needed to develop organizational structure and standard operating procedures.
  • Comprehend respiratory program requirements and the selection and use of respiratory protection equipment and chemically protective clothing. Combined these are known as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
