New OSHA Videos Demonstrate Respirator Safety

OSHA has recently published two new videos focusing on respiratory safety for workers in the health care field. The videos, available in both English and Spanish, demonstrates proper methods of putting on/taking off respirators including performing a seal check.

David Michaels, Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA said,”Respirators play an important role in protecting many workers from exposure to chemical and biological hazards in the workplace. At a time when pandemic influenza has highlighted the risk to healthcare workers, these videos will prepare and protect workers from the very illnesses they are responsible for treating.”
