    Healthcare practices are required to protect their employees from the risks of respiratory hazards under OSHA’s standards. The checklist for determining if your practice needs to have a plan can be accessed here (Permissible Practice) If your practice has a respiratory plan it needs to meet OSHA’s specific standards. To evaluate your current plan, access the OSHA checklist and compare it to your plan’s elements.(Respiratory Protection Programs) If your plan does not meet the requirements, or if you do not have a plan, you can create an OSHA-compliant plan by answering a few questions. After you complete the questionnaire, you will have a plan that can be used in your practice. This plan should be reviewed with all of your employees and be accessible at all times to anyone who requests access to the plan.
