shield

Respiratory hazards such as gases, mold spores, toxic fumes and vapors, pose major problems for employees because many hazards cannot easily be seen or smelled. Respiratory problems also come from visible hazards such as dust, and fibers.

Respiratory hazards may pose an immediate threat to health, while others may cause long-term damage. In this 4-hour course, workers learn about respiratory hazards and how to protect themselves.
