Respiratory Protection Programs
The primary purpose of a Respiratory Protection Program is to insure the health and safety of workers who wear respirators. OSHA Standard 1910.134 requires that 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.
Occupational Safety can help you to establish, implement and maintain these procedures. We offer consultation for determining the hazards that are involved and the selection of proper respiratory equipment. Our certified technicians conduct medical evaluations, fit testing and training for employees who use respirators. We offer continuing periodic surveillance and evaluation of the workplace and workers to insure that your respiratory protection program is being properly implemented and adhered to.
Occupational Safety knows that your employees are a valuable asset, and we strive to develop the most comprehensive, functional and easy to maintain respiratory protection program available, customized to your company’s needs. Occupational Safety is the source for all your respiratory protection needs.

Hearing Protection Programs
Every year, approximately 30 million people in the United States are occupationally exposed to hazardous noise. Fortunately, the incidence of noise-induced hearing loss can be reduced or eliminated through the successful application of engineering controls and hearing conservation training programs.
Occupational Safety offers a choice of proven education programs that will fulfill the employer’s annual requirement for hearing conservation education/training.
This instruction can be scheduled to coincide with the employees’ annual hearing tests or on a date that more suitably fits into the company’s annual safety training calendar. Time tested teaching methods and current training materials combine to hold the participants’ attention. At your directive ,presentations can be tailored to emphasize specific objectives for the workplace.
“OSHA 29CFR 1910.95 The employer shall administer a continuing, effective hearing conservation program, whenever employee noise exposures equal or exceed an 8-hour time-weighted average sound level (TWA) of 85 decibels.”
