Fit testing

Fit testing

OSHA’s Respiratory Protection Standard (29 CFR 1910.134) requires that employees be both medically cleared through a medical evaluation and fit tested before wearing a respirator, as well as on an annual basis. If respirators are not required (due to air testing results) but you require an employee to wear a respirator, then fit testing must also be completed.
In addition, fit tests should be performed whenever a different size, style, model, or make of respirator is used or when any facial changes occur that could affect fit, such as significant weight fluctuation or dental work.
