Presentation Description:

Respiratory Protection prevents inhalation to the body against dusts, mists, fumes, smoke, gases vapours or a combination of other contaminants inclusive of atmospheres deficient in oxygen.  Understanding the principles of respiratory protection in the context of Indoor Air Quality is a vital part of our Risk Assessment in the prevention of exposure to airborne contaminants. This session will look at the selection, use and maintenance of RPE to ensure optimal protection. This session is for people that do not want to compromise their health in Indoor Air Quality by workplace and other related potential exposures. This informative session is intended for persons of varied backgrounds, and it does assume the attendees have some basic previous experience with respiratory protection.
