Respirator Fit Testing
Employees must meet fit-testing requirements including proper documentation BEFORE registering. We are unable to refund the cost of your fit test if the employee is not prepared or does not have documentation.
Requirements: Please Read Carefully
We perform qualitative fit testing using Irritant Smoke as recommended by OSHA. Employees will be issued a pass/fail notification that should be returned to their employer as part of the employee’s medical records. Employees MUST have the following to be fit-tested:
Current Medical (“Fit-to-Wear”) Clearance. This clearance must have been performed and signed by a medical professional within the last 12 months. Employees MUST bring a copy of the clearance the day they are fit tested, NO EXCEPTIONS!
If you do not have a current Medical Clearance, we offer convenient, OSHA approved online clearances for a very reasonable fee. All clearances are reviewed and approved by an MD!
- The Respirator they will be using on the job. We cannot supply a respirator for fit-testing, OSHA requires fit testing on the actual respirator the employee uses in the field.
- TWO (2) NEW P-100 or HEPA Filters for testing. We do NOT supply filters.
- Employees MUST be Clean Shaven. Employees with facial hair, must shave the day of the fit test.
During Open-Enrollment classes, we can only accept 3 fit-test registrations PER company, per day. If your group requires more on a single day, please call 800-711-2706 Ext 1. We offer on-site fit testing for large groups. Depending on location, additional charges may be required to cover travel, mileage and additional labor costs.
