Identifying Work Hazards:
Clinic Respiratory Protection Program Template

 

  • The respirators selected will be used for respiratory protection from potentially airborne infectious diseases; they do not provide protection from chemical exposure.

  • Through normal working situations employees may be asked to have contact with clients who could be infected with a potentially airborne infectious agent such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

  • Examples of other potentially airborne infectious diseases that Clinic employees may be exposed to in emergency situations include: Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), measles, and smallpox.
