Respiratory



In the CAL OSHA Title 8 regulation Subchapter 7 section 5144 requires the employer to develop and implement a written respiratory protection program with required worksite-specific procedures and elements for required respirator use.
The program must be administered by a suitably trained program administrator.
In addition, certain program elements may be required for voluntary use to prevent potential hazards associated with the use of the respirator.
In any workplace where respirators are necessary to protect the health of the employee or whenever respirators are required by the employer, the employer shall establish and implement a written respiratory protection program with worksite-specific procedures.
The program shall be updated as necessary to reflect those changes in workplace conditions that affect respirator use.
