Respiratory protection is essential for personnel who may, in work or emergency situations, be exposed to atmospheric or respiratory hazards. Training includes theory of respiration and oxygen deficiency, recognition of respiratory hazards and variations of respiratory protection equipment.
Including an array of respiratory protection, such as particulate filters (P2), and chemical specific canister filters, and open circuit breathing apparatus; participants learn care and maintenance, assembly of equipment, calculating air capacity and working duration, procedures for donning, start up and closing down equipment, safe work practices, and emergency procedures.
Each participant is provided with the opportunity to become comfortable and wear breathing apparatus in controlled conditions, before learning to work in darkness, noisy environments and smoke. Practical training concludes with search and rescue exercises to allow participants to apply and develop relevant skills, tailored to their work environment.
At all times instructors work with the participant to build confidence in themselves, the equipment, their team members and the use of work safe procedures.
This course may be shortened in duration for those sites who do not require training in the use of supplied air or self contained breathing apparatus.
