LeadingAge NY Hosts Respiratory Protection Program Webinar

On Jan. 27, 2021, LeadingAge NY sponsored a webinar entitled Respiratory Protection: OSHA Compliance for Long-Term Care Facilities. The webinar provided excellent information on the process of setting up an approved Respiratory Protection Program (RPP) within your facility and can be viewed here. The presentation referenced an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)-approved template that can be utilized while setting up your program. In October 2009, during the H1N1 health emergency, the Department of Health (DOH) issued a Dear Administrator Letter (DAL) addressing respiratory protection, and it remains pertinent when addressing COVID-19 today.
