REGULATION NEWS & INFORMATION
 

Spanish translations of respiratory protection documents now easier to find online.

Direct links to Spanish translations of two documents on respirator use are now on OSHA's Respiratory Protection Safety and Health Topics page. The "Medical Evaluation Questionnaire" and "Information for Employees Using Respirators When Not Required Under Standard" are included in Appendices C and D of OSHA's respiratory protection standard. The new links make it easier to find the Spanish-language versions of these documents, "Cuestionario de Evaluacion Medico obligado por la OSHA" and "Informacion Para los Empleados Que Usan los Respiradores Cuando No lo Exige el Reglamento o Norma," enhancing their usefulness in protecting the health of workers.

Conversion of Mark 2(TM) SCBAs to Current Sperian SCBAs

Sperian Respiratory Protection will no longer be manufacturing any parts or components specific to the Mark 2 SCBA. Current on-hand inventory is available while supplies last.

As a policy, Sperian Respiratory Protection is committed to providing full parts and service support for all SCBAs for seven years after the discontinuation of an SCBA. In 2010, we hit the 10-year anniversary of the retirement of the Mark 2 SCBA.
