OSHA Respiratory Protection Training Requirements

Per OSHA requirements in Standard 29 CFR 1910.134, employers must provide effective training to employees who are required to use respirators. The training must include:

  • Why the respirator is needed
  • How the respirator can and cannot protect the user
  • How to properly inspect and use the respirator, including how to put it on and take it off
  • How to check the seal of the respirator ("user seal check")
  • How to use the respirator in emergency situations, including if respirator doesn't work properly
  • How to recognize the medical signs and symptoms that limit or prevent respirator use
  • How a respirators effectiveness is impacted by improper fit, usage or maintenance
  • Maintenance and storage procedures for the respirator
  • The Federal or State OSHA requirements for the OSHA Respiratory Protection Standards

Training is required prior to initial respirator use, unless acceptable training has been provided by a previous employer in the last 12 months. Respiratory Protection training is required annually AND when workplace conditions change, new respirator types will be used, or an employee needs retraining.
