Respiratory Protection for Oil and Gas Personnel Thumbnail
For Multiple Users
Oil and gas exploration and production often causes workers to encounter hazardous atmospheres. Hazardous chemical fumes, low oxygen environments, and even some types of dust particles can cause injury or illness to workers. If the atmosphere becomes hazardous to breathe, employees may require respiratory protection. Learners who successfully complete this course will demonstrate knowledge of the basics of respiratory protection and how to use it on the job. Employees will learn about potential inhalation hazards, the different respirator types and their uses, how to fit test a respirator mask, and respirator care and maintenance. This course is designed for employees on oil and gas exploration and production sites who, during their regular work duties, are required to wear respiratory protection, and is intended to assist the employer in meeting OSHA’s Respiratory Protection Standard. The course features examples and scenarios unique to the oil and gas industry. While this course addresses OSHA training requirements, there may be additional site-specific training components, hands-on training, and health testing required that must be fulfilled by an employer.
