Breathing - it's something we all do all the time, without even thinking about it. Most of the time we don't have to because the air around us is safe, but when we are on the job we could run into situations where it could damage our bodies or even be fatal. In times like these, we need to take personal responsibility for our safety, and that means using respiratory protection. This video alerts workers to the importance of protecting their respiratory systems and provides them with helpful tips for using and maintaining respirators properly. Topics include types of respiratory hazards, selecting the appropriate respirator and using respirators in emergencies. Fitting, cleaning, disinfecting and storing respirators properly are other topics covered.
