Employees using respirators are required to be medically evaluated, trained, and fit tested. This 1-hour course provides respirator wearers vital information necessary to properly use respirators. The session, usually one-on-one with an EH&S representative, discusses respirator use, limitation, capabilities, inspection, maintenance, and fitting. A confidential Medical Questionnaire will be completed and faxed to the Institute’s Occupational Physician.
Respirator users must pass a fit test on their selected respirator.
