OVERVIEW

Do you use respiratory protective equipment (RPE) as a control measure?

Do you know if the equipment is suitable for use by all those required to wear it?

Do you know if it is adequately reducing employees’ exposure?

Respiratory protective equipment (RPE) is used in many workplaces as a means of controlling exposure to airborne hazardous substances.  However, using RPE is not necessarily the easy option that many consider it to be.  For RPE to provide an effective means of control it must be selected correctly and then used appropriately at all times. Failure to do so may lead to a false sense of controlled risk and potentially increased exposure to hazardous substances.

Where RPE is being used a comprehensive management programme should be in place.  This will provide the guidance and assurance that the RPE used is providing the exposure reduction expected and required.

OBJECTIVES

If you are responsible for the RPE programme in your workplace this short course will provide you with an understanding of all of the steps required to provide a comprehensive programme including: selection, use, maintenance and disposal of the equipment and an understanding of the training which wearers should receive.

The information will enable you to assess the use of RPE in your workplace and to implement improvements where required.

  • Managers
