Course Description

Protective breathing apparatus is extremely crucial to the wellbeing of any worker who may be exposed to a hazardous environment. Failure to use this equipment could lead to unsuccessful rescue attempts, injuries and/or fatalities. Employees should be knowledgeable of potentially hazardous environments, the requirements for wearing protective breathing apparatus, the proper procedures for donning, doffing and inspecting the apparatus as well as the proper care and maintenance of the equipment. There are two types of SCBA, belt-mounted regulators (BMR) and mask-mounted regulators (MMR). An SCBA can also be an open or closed-circuit unit.
