Back to Basics: OSHA Fit Testing for Particulate Respirators

Known respiratory diseases like tuberculosis are highly contagious and even deadly. But there are also emerging respiratory diseases like SARS, Avian Flu and Smallpox that can appear unexpectedly and can be just as dangerous. When transmission occurs in the healthcare setting, it is usually due to unprotected exposure to infected individuals.

This 10-minute general orientation program complies with OSHA’s required respiratory protection training, including the following information on respirators:

  • When to use a respirator
  • Mandatory fit testing for proper size
  • How to don and remove respirators
  • How to perform a user/seal check
  • How to maintain and store them properly
  • When to dispose of them
  • What to do if there are problems with the respirator during use

This program can be purchased individually.

Back to Basics: Selecting and Using Personal Protective Equipment

The proper use of PPE is so important that OSHA requires it to protect healthcare workers from exposure to bloodborne pathogens, tuberculosis, and any other potentially infectious disease. In addition, the CDC recommends certain PPE to create a barrier between the healthcare worker and infectious material.

This 10-minute general orientation program educates all healthcare workers on every important aspect of PPE, including:

  • The types of PPE
  • Selecting PPE following Standard Precautions and Extended Precautions
  • Selecting PPE according to the task
  • Safe work practices
  • How to properly don and remove PPE

This program can be purchased individually

Back to Basics: Applying Standard Precautions

Acquiring or transmitting a deadly pathogen is a concern for every healthcare employee. According to the CDC, one of the best ways to prevent infection is to interrupt the pathogen during transmission, and the principle way to do this is to practice Standard Precautions. Standard Precautions assumes that all patients in every healthcare setting are potentially colonized or infected with an organism that can be transmitted to others.

This 10-minute general orientation program will help all healthcare workers understand and apply the basic principles of Standard Precautions, including:

  • Proper hand hygiene
  • Application of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Respiratory hygiene/Cough etiquette
  • Appropriate patient placement
  • Cleaning, disinfection or sterilization of patient care equipment, instruments and devices
  • Care of the environment
  • Correct handling of textiles and laundry
  • Safe injection practices
  • Safe work practices
