The AS/NZS 1715:2009 standard states that where RPE is required to be worn, a respiratory protection program must also be established. A company must appoint a program administrator who should ensure the following:
Failure to do so could lead to a hefty fine, employee ill-health or in severe situations, death of the wearer.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is one of many preventable conditions caused by prolonged exposure to hazardous respiratory substances at work and is the 5th leading cause of death in Australia.
