    Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)

    Course Summary:
    • Every worker who needs to wear an SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus) for the professional purpose has to previously follow SCBA training as required in many countries by laws and regulations.
    • Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) is respiratory protective equipment (class 3 PPE) that requires 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.
    Covered Topics:
    • The SCBA course is designed to provide the participants with the basic skills necessary to use the Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). Many jobs at oil & gas and industrial field intent to you SCBA at many occasion specifically tank entry and confined space entry.
