Respirator Fit Testing
WorkCare offers qualitative respirator fit testing
Fit testing is an important requirement in the process of determining whether a given respirator is the “correct” respirator for a particular worker. The OSHA standard requires that a respiratory protection program be established by an employer when effective engineering controls are not feasible. The primary objective is to prevent excessive exposure to hazardous occupational airborne contaminants. Employers are responsible for determining which work applications require respiratory protection and providing proper respiratory protection to meet the needs of those applicants.
WorkCare offers this valuable service for industrial and corporate employers across West Tennessee and throughout the Mid-South.
