Comment | More

The critical worker-safety issue of appropriate respiratory protection will be the focus of a free upcoming webinar presented by JPCL and SSPC.

Respiratory Protection Webinar

The Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings and the Society for Protective Coatings will present "Developing an OSHA-Compliant Respiratory Protection Program" from 11 a.m. to noon EDT Wednesday (Feb. 23).

The program is part of the JPCL/SSPC Webinar Education Series, which provides continuing education for SSPC recertifications and technology updates on important topics.

Other recent topics in the series have included disposing of waste water in UHP operations, writing good bridge specifications, and advances in polyurethane and polyurea technology.

OSHA Protection Standards

The OSHA Respiratory Protection Standard requires that employers whose employees use respiratory protection implement a respiratory protection program. Full compliance means that employers must be able to determine when the use of respiratory protection is appropriate to control worker exposure to airborne hazards—and, when it is, to use it in accordance with a written program that addresses the program elements of the standard.

Webinar presenter Stan Liang, of KTA-Tator Inc., will address a variety of approaches to controlling worker exposure to respiratory hazards, such as ventilation or other engineering controls, job rotation or other administrative controls, and respiratory protection. The webinar will include a discussion of when OSHA permits the use of respiratory protection. Participants may register here free.

CEU Credits

SSPC is an accredited training provider for the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE), and Professional Engineers in Florida may submit SSPC Webinar Continuing Education Units to the board. Those who wish to do so must download the FBPE CEU form and pass the Webinar Exam.  The cost of the test is $25. Registration is available through the SSPC MarketPlace.

Free Bridge Spec Webcast Available

A free webcast on the complexities of specifications for bridge painting is now available at www.paintsquare.com.

"Writing a Good Specification for Bridge Painting" was presented Wednesday (Feb. 16) as part of the SSPC/JPCL Education Series.

Presenter Derrick Castle, of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, reviewed essential items to consider when writing a quality specification for a typical protective coating system that is being applied to a bridge.

The free recording can be accessed here.
