Supplied Air/Respirator Testing (SABA/SCBA)
This course was designed to cover the duties of the workers with respect to fresh air equipment. Participants view a video and answer questions based on the information from the video. All types of fresh air systems can be used depending on the Contractor requirements. A qualitative fit-test using a Portacount machine determines proper mask size and user’s ability to don and doff the mask. The practical portion of this training has the worker hooking up to the air-supply and how the equipment operates. The instructor will also identify and ensure an understanding of the steps to follow in an emergency.
