We train workers to understand the requirements of the Regulation, Act and CSA standards with respect to performing respirator fit tests on workers.  This includes the understanding of roles and responsibilities, what is required in a respiratory program, and the basic sources of respiratory hazards.  We also will look at the different types of respirators, care, maintenance, storage as well as the difference between filters and cartridges.
