Respiratory Fit Testing

OSHA requires medical monitoring prior to fit-testing and initial use of respiratory protection. Although students will learn principles of respiratory equipment and observe a variety of respiratory protection equipment, they will not be exposed to conditions that may put them at physical risk. After training, students will be required by their employers to obtain medical clearance in accordance with OSHA if they will use respiratory protection as part of their job duties.
