The overall effect of KPA’s Online Respiratory Protection Course is a significant increase in workers following correct safety procedures on the job.
Lafayette, CO (PRWEB) April 04, 2012
KPA’s Respiratory Protection Course has undergone a complete redesign so that collision centers, body shops, and dealerships go beyond meeting OSHA’s classroom training requirements, to increase the frequency of workers properly wearing respiratory protection on the job.
KPA’s Online Respiratory Protection Course fulfills OSHA’s annual classroom-training requirement for respiratory protection. The course covers how to select, wear, and maintain proper respiratory protection. Interactive elements in the course cover situations that happen daily in conditions at these workplaces, and everything is carefully presented for one very precise training message.
“It’s one thing if workers have taken a required course and signed the paperwork, but if they don’t follow through and actually wear respiratory protection on the job, that still leaves employers vulnerable to regulatory fines or Worker’s Compensation lawsuits,” explains Peter Zaidel, Product Manager for KPA’s Environment & Safety Services.
With this in mind, the course has been redesigned around one single goal; to get every worker to correctly wear respiratory protection every time they put it on for the job. “KPA’s Online Respiratory Protection Course comes with a powerful message that if you don’t wear the right respiratory protection when you should, you could get sick or even die,” said Peter. The overall effect of KPA’s Online Respiratory Protection Course is a significant increase in workers following correct safety procedures on the job.
OSHA’s respiratory protection regulation requires that employers present training in a way which all affected employees can understand. To make compliance easier for small businesses with Spanish speaking employees, KPA delivers a new, professionally translated Online Respiratory Protection Course in neutral Latin-American Spanish.
All employees who successfully complete KPA’s Online Respiratory Protection Course will be able to identify safety risks in the workplace and understand company policies for respiratory protection.
