Important Information

Employees must meet fit-testing requirements including proper documentation BEFORE registeringWe 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!

  1. 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.
  2. TWO (2) NEW P-100 or HEPA Filters for testing. We do NOT supply filters.
  3. 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.
