This should get you statrted...
Your current SCBA maintenance program are evaluated against the respirator and SCBA maintenance requirements listed in the following recognized national standards:
Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 1910.134 known as The OSHA Respirator Standard.
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1404 Standard for a Fire Department Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus Program, 1996 Edition.
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1500 Fire Department Occupational Safety and Health Program, 1997 Edition
These standards are recognized national standards and as such, specify the minimum benchmark requirements that all good respirator programs should strive to meet or exceed. Compliance with these standards is considered to be essential to maintain your SCBA in a condition meeting the certification requirements of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) found in Title 42, Code of Regulation, Part 84, Subpart H, as well as the National Fire Protection NFPA 1981 Standard on Open-Circuit Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus for the Fire Service, 1997 Edition. Failure to maintain your SCBA in an approved condition voids the NIOSH approval until such time as each affected SCBA can be inspected, serviced, and returned to an approved condition.Paul in VT
