RRP OSHA Respirator Fit Test For Mass Contractors; Youtube Video

  
  
  
  

Yesterday, The Contractor Coaching Partnership and Safety Trainers, Inc. conducted a RRP/OSHA Respirator and Lead in Construction training for Massachusetts contractors. We developed this training to help Massachusetts RRP trained contractors prepare for the Mass Lead Safe Renovation Contractor application.

Many contractors have asked us to help them with the OSHA requirements referenced in the RRP training. The 8 hour RRP training does not devote enough time to OSHA requirements even though contractors are responsible to know them.

The RRP Lead Law was taken over by the state of Mass in July of 2010. Massachusetts added the OSHA Lead in Construction Standard and Respirator Program to the Mass RRP Lead Law.

Mass Contractors must supply a written respirator and worker protection plan with their Lead Safe Renovation Contractor (certified firm) application in order to obtain their lead license.

Here is a video of Darcy Cook and Joe Ceccerelli of Safety Trainers, Inc. demonstrating the respirator fit testing required before an employee can wear a respirator for RRP work.

Perhaps the RRP Training should include the history of Title 10 and origin of what is now RRP so the radical political wing nuts like the above would know whats going on. Also, perhaps something about the 320,000 children who have disabilities from lead ingestion which reveals the real reason for the RRP Law, an update of the law from 2001. Or, just polute everthing and look for a new planet. I'm not a tree hugger but I do breath the air and drink the water.

I was one of the recent attendees at this seminar offered by The Contractor Coaching Partnership and Safety Trainers. Each of us, regardless, of how you feel about the governments interventions, have a choice to make. Either you can get on board with these laws or you can expend your time and energy fighting these laws while operating outside the law. Laws have been changed in the past through logical presentation and mature review of the facts. The law will not be changed overnight if at all, so you have a choice to make if you want to get on board and operate under the constraints of this law or work in violation of the law. Make your choice wisely and determine if you want to get on board now or miss the train as it pulls away. Once you are on board you have a chance of convincing the engineer to make the stop that may not be on his schedule!
