Breathing Apparatus Training
There are many types of breathing apparatus, but all will supply air from an independent source such as a compressed air cylinder or air compressor and can be used to safeguard against a range of airborne hazards and in different atmospheres. Breathing apparatus is highly specialised equipment and potential wearers must be adequately trained.
This breathing apparatus training course provides the delegate with an understanding of how to identify safe working periods incorporating the use of BA boards and simple calculations as well as pre-wearer checks, donning, doffing, cleaning and storage.
The course is delivered in line with HSE Respiratory guidelines and covers:
• Legislation and guidance
• Risk Assessments
• Respiratory system, cause and effect
• Cylinder durations
• Practical exercises
