For the last few years PCPA has not had a respirator program. We decided that unless we are able to give everyone the same proper respirator training along with the important provision for medical screening that is necessary for the safe and proper use of respirators, that we would focus more on using materials in adequate ventilation and try to avoid materials that require respirators.
We are about ready to do a proper respirator training and to implement a respirator program. I was wondering if anyone can share how you and your company manage cartridge use? Do you have a system for tracking how often each cartridge is used and when it should be disposed of? How do you store your cartridges?
