SCBA training


Every worker who needs to wear an SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus) for professional purpose has to previously follow SCBA training as required in many countries by laws and regulations.

SCBA training course and respirator training for better safety against gas exposure

Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) are respiratory protective equipment (class 3 PPE) that require its user to have the proper SCBA training. These self contained respirators are designed to be used when the oxygen rate is under 19.5% volume (presence of asphyxiating gases or fumes), in presence of irritating gases or when the pollutant concentration exceeds 60 times its occupational exposure limit (OEL) (using filtering respiratory protection in these conditions is not efficient and can even be harmful) .

According to several national regulations worldwide, wearing an SCBA for professional purpose demands participation to respirator training sessions.
