Respiratory Protection Program

A Respiratory Protection Program (RPP) aims to support healthcare workers protect themselves against acquiring respiratory illness by minimising the risk of exposure to respiratory hazards. This risk mitigation includes education and training in the correct application of a respirator. On this page you will find current WA guidance on the minimum requirements Health Service Providers (HSPs) must implement in a RPP. All guidance provided is applicable to all public hospitals and health services (it can also be adopted by private facilities).
