Houston, TX – OSHA has released its COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS), including an addition labeled the Mini Respiratory Protection Program (Mini RPP). Businesses who use respirators for coronavirus-related purposes should note the purpose and requirements of the ETS moving forward.
Vest provides the industry-leading solution for online Respirator Clearance and associated record storage required by OSHA. Their team of safety and occupational health professionals are experts in OSHA regulations and are ready to help organizations understand and comply with the new temporary requirements.
The Mini Respiratory Protection Program applies only to specific circumstances under the ETS, generally for when workers are not exposed to suspected sources of COVID-19 but are still using respirators to increase worker protection and reduce the chance of infections (voluntary use).
Note that the OSHA Respiratory Protection standard (OSHA 1910.134), which applies to any circumstance where workers are required to use respiratory protection, is still in effect. The new Mini RPP does not replace or overwrite any part of the Respiratory Protection standard. Rather, the Mini RPP augments existing voluntary practices to ensure respirators are used safely and effectively.
The Mini Respiratory Protection Program, as part of the COVID-19 ETS, is expected to be a temporary requirement, although no specific date for ending the program has been announced.
If your organization, like so many others, is struggling to understand the complexities of the ETS and the new Mini RPP, the experts at Vest are here to help. Vest’s online Respirator Clearance allows companies to clear their workforce for respirator use online without leaving the job site. This creates a more efficient process and reduces costs.
