OSHA Hazardous Waste Sites: Respirator Inspection Mobile App
Each inspection will cover somewhat different areas in varying degrees of depth.
How does it work?
Detailed inspection procedures, where appropriate, are usually available from the manufacturer. The inspection checklists provided in the OSHA Hazardous Waste Sites: Respirator Inspection mobile app may also be an aid. Records must be kept of all inspection procedures. Individual identification numbers should be assigned to all reusable pieces of equipment (respirators may already have ID numbers) and records should be maintained by that number. At a minimum, each inspection should record the ID number, date, inspector, and any unusual conditions or findings. Periodic review of these records may indicate an item or type of item with excessive maintenance costs or a particularly high level of "down-time."
