Tool Box Talk Preventing Interference with the Respirator Seal Mobile App
The Tool Box Talk Preventing Interference with the Respirator Seal app opens a discussion and offers information and training on preventing interference with the respirator seal when used in construction projects.
How does it work?
Essentially, this is where the respirator seals with a worker's face - it states that nothing must come between the respirator and the skin, ie eyeglass frames, head coverings, beards, sideburns, and stubble must not interfere with the seal. All of these items cause the respirator to make a poor seal with the face. It states that not following these guidelines will lead to the likes of dust, mist, fibres, fume particles, and gas and vapour molecules making their way through the seal, potentially causing serious health problems. The form also includes a section to record the staff who attended the training including their signature and the company they work for. There is also a section for the manager's remarks about the training.
