An OSHA requirement whereby any employer who requires or permits employees to wear a respirator must have a written respiratory protection program. The written respirator program establishes standard operating procedures concerning the use and maintenance of respiratory equipment. In addition to having such a written program, the employer must also be able to demonstrate that the program is enforced and update d as necessary. (See CPI Publication AX246 “Model Respiratory Protection Program for Compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Respiratory Protection Program Standard 29 CFR § 1910.134.”)
