Escape Respirators and SCSRs
- Send to friend
A respirator is a piece of personal protective equipment that guards the user against hazards in the air. There are many types of respirators and each type protects its user from a specific airborne hazard. Escape respirators allow a person who works in a normally safe environment enough time to escape if a respiratory hazard suddenly occurs. This course will discuss the different types of hazardous atmospheres that require escape respirators, how to select, inspect, and put on a self-contained self-rescuer, also called an SCSR, as well as how to use an SCSR.
