RESPIRATORS

Respirator Safety Basics
For those of you who use respirators, your
knowledge of the principles of respiratory protection is very important. Some of the elements that have a direct impact on you
include a knowledge of selection criteria, medical evaluations, procedures for proper use, fit
testing and maintenance.
Selecting the appropriate respirator is up to
us. In some cases, users will have to be fit
tested. Tight-fitting respirators must fit correctly to ensure that they will provide adequate protection. In addition, respirator users
will have to undergo medical evaluations to
determine whether they are fit to wear a respirator without suffering any adverse health
effects. Finally, training on the procedures for
proper use and maintenance will help wearers
use and take care of their respirators safely.
On most sites, there's not a lot of danger
of inhaling a harmful gas or fume, but we
will run into situations where respirators
are necessary.
(Discuss situations where respirators may
be required. Also discuss the reasons why respirators are necessary in those areas, including the types of hazards they are protecting
employees against.)

A Look At Various Types Of Respirators
Today I'd like to give you a general
overview of the different kinds of respirators
that are available. Each type is designed to
protect against a specific kind of substance.
It is important for us to select the right one.
You can help us by familiarizing yourself
with the various types of respirators.
Air-purifying or fJJ.teringrespirators are the
first category. These respirators are designed
for areas that have enough oxygen but also
have dangerous levels of air contaminants.
These contaminants are removed as they pass
through the respirator's canister or cartridge.
Air-purifying respirators can be divided into
two types. Some fJJ.terout dusts, fibers, fumes
and mists, and others remove a specific contaminant by absorbing it or by chemical reaction. This category includes gas masks.
In addition to air-purifying respirators, there
are also air-supplying respirators. This type of

respirator provides air from a tank or compressor through a hose and is used in areas
that don't have enough oxygen. There are two
types of air supplying respirators.
The first is a self-contained breathing apparatus or SCBA.This kind of respirator allows
the u~er to move around because the oxygen
tank is portable. However, the amount of air
in the tank is limited.
The alternative is a full-face mask that is
attached by a hose to a large tank of compressed air. This kind of respirator basically
eliminates air-supply concerns, but the hoses
can be cumbersome.
After you've selected and used a respirator,
you need to make sure you clean and maintain it properly.
(Discuss whether you have instituted an
employee-responsibility program for respirator inspection or whether supervisors perform this function.)

Guidelines For Inspecting Your Respirator
You also need to inspect your respirator
before using it. Inspections should be done
with certain guidelines in mind.
First, all respirators should be inspected:
./ Before each use
./ After each use
./ After cleaning.
Emergency use respirators should be
inspected:
./ Before and after each use
./ Monthly if not used regularly.
Some things to look for include:
./ Holes, cracks or other damage
./ Signs of wear on the headband, the facepiece seal, valves, tubes, canisters, etc.
./ Loose connections
./ Air cylinders that are not fully charged
./ Damage to fJJ.ters,canisters or cartridges.
Respirators will only protect you if you follow all safety procedures. Make sure you have
the right respirator for the job and that you
have been properly fitted and trained.
Thanks for your attention.
Have a safe day.

Safety "alks
How We Can All Plan For A
Safe Demolition Job
Whether it's a matter of breaking concrete
for streets and highways, wrecking buildings
or dismantling steel tanks, demolition work is
in a class by itself. There are plenty of hazards and safety procedures specific to this
kind of work and failing to pay attention to
them puts lives at risk.
Before undertaking any demolitionjob, there
are a number of steps we take to safeguard
your health and safety at the job site. In fact,
as far as we're concerned, planning is just as
important as actually doing the work.

Step One: The Engineering Survey
To begin with, OSHArequires that an engineering survey be conducted by a competent
person. The purpose of this survey is to check
the condition of the framing, floors and walls
so we can take measures to prevent anything
from collapsing unexpectedly. The survey also
gives us a chance to evaluate the job in its
entirety. We plan the follOwing:
• How we are going to wreck the structure
• What kinds of equipment we'll need
• Our manpower requirements
• How we're going to protect the public.
In reality, many of the safety procedures
related to demolition work are things that we
do before a job begins. However, there are
plenty of safety issues we all need to keep in
mind during the entire process. Let's review a
few of the basics:
1. If you are required to use personal protective equipment, such as respirators,
lifelines, warning signs, safety nets, special face and eye protection, hearing protection, etc., use it.
2. During some demolitionjObs we need to
maintain utilities. When we do, the lines
are temporarily relocated or protected.
We also locate all overhead power
sources. You need to know the location of
any existing or relocated utility service.
3. Know what to do in the event that a
worker is injured. Make sure you know
where the first-aid kit is kept.

The Foreman's Safety Meeting Script

DEMOLITION
SAFETY

4. Know your role in our fire plan, including evacuation procedures.
5. If you are using equipment that is powered by an internal combustion engine,
set it up so that the exhaust discharges
away from combustible materials and
co-workers.
6. Use only approved containers and
portable tanks to store and handle flammable and combustible liquids.
7. Set up heating devices so that they
won't overturn and install them in
accordance with their listing.
8. Do not smoke in the vicinity of hazardous operations or materials.
9. If you are working near explosives, do
not carry matches, lighters or other
sources of sparks or flame.
10. When hand demolition work is required
on something like a chimney, you must
work from a platform and wear a hard
hat, long-sleeved shirt, eye and face
protection, respirator and safety belt, as
required.
11. Do not allow debris to accumulate in
the immediate work area. Dispose of it
according to appropriate procedures .
12. If you come into contact with a confined
space during a demolition jOb, do not
enter it unless you have been properly
trained and appropriate precautions
have been taken.
13. Never leave a vehicle that is being used
to transport explosives unattended.
14. Follow proper disposal procedures for
explosives, blasting agents and blasting
supplies.
15. If you are uncertain about any safety
or health issue, ask before proceeding.
Another point I would like to mention concerns radio frequency (RF) signals from
two-way radios. Electrical detonators can be
inadvertently triggered by stray RF signals.
Therefore, RF signal sources are restricted
on or near the demolition site when we are
using these detonators.
Thanks for your attention.
Have a safe day.

Share Your Questions And Concerns Accidents involving aerial lifts are often very serious. you must first be trained on how to safely use the equipment. that could make operating an aerial lift dangerous. Those of you working atop the aerial lift should also keep your distance from overhead lines. talk to your supervisor. If you feel the aerial lift is too close to an overhead line. I The Foreman's Safety Meeting Script Aerial Lifts You will also be trained on safe work practices that you should use when working from an aerial lift. You might just be protecting yourself and your co-workers from an accident that's waiting to happen. most of these fatalities are caused by worker falls. from a safety point of view to treat the line as if it is still energized. OSHAnotes that each year. Remember. Your co-workers learn too. I'd like to talk about some of the things we will do to ensure your safety and the measures you can take to help us. For aerial lift operators. For instance. you're not the only one who learns from your questions. In addition. You will be trained on the vehicle and lift components. For example. If you think a work condition is unsafe. Those of you who work atop aerial lifts will receive training on hazards involved with the lifts. even if you think the line has been de-energized. Under no circumstances are you allowed to climb on or lean over guardrails or handrails.

A Medical Evaluation Is Necessary Workers assigned to tasks that require respirator use must be physically able to perform the work while using the respirator. The important thing to remember is that respirators are used only in very hazardous environments.If you are not carrying the air source yourself. These hazards can be linked to cancer. If so. you are using a supplied air respirator. When you are in an IDLHsituation. lung impairment and other diseases. It is not a matter of just grabbing a respirator and throwing it on when you think you need one. or IDLH. cartridge or canister. The employer must obtain a written recommendation from the physician or LHCPfor each employee's ability to wear a respirator. it is for good reason. Emergency rescues and/ or firefighting in IDLHsituations are extremely dangerous activities. • Atmosphere-supplying respirators provide clean air from a separate source. Thanks for your attention. This evaluation must be done before the employee is fit tested and uses the respirator in the workplace. this is referred to as I The Foreman's Safety Meeting Script I Respirators a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). An oxygen-deficient work area is one that is considered immediately dangerous to life or health. That person will be equipped with a positive pressure SCBAand will have been trained to perform an emergency rescue. Additional medical evaluations must be provided whenever health care professionals deem them appropriate. he or she will be carefully fitted prior to beginning any work. Choosing The Right Respirator Once we know what type of hazard we're dealing with and an employee has been given the OKby a physician or LHCP. so when respirators are required. A local physician or licensed health care professional (LHCP)will determine an employee's eligibility by performing a medical evaluation.must be stationed outside the IDLHspace. there are occasions when respirators are necessary on a construction site. They work by having the air pass through a filter. voice or signal contact with at least one employee outside that atmosphere. Respirators are designed to protect us against insufficient oxygen environments. Oxygen-Deficient Environments When there is not enough oxygen in a particular work area. vapors and sprays. They must wear SCBAsand stay in constant voice or visual contact with each other. There are more safety precautions and procedures surrounding respirators than we have time to discuss today. There are several kinds: • Air-purifying respirators are designed to remove specific contaminants from the air. At least two trained employees must enter the IDLHarea to perform either of these tasks. not only must you wear the right respirator. This will help ensure that the respirator does its job and effectively protects the employee from any contaminants in the work environment.
