Current OSHA standards state, “Before an employee may be required to use any respirator with a negative or positive pressure tight-fitting face piece, the employee must be fit tested with the same make, model, style, and size of respirator that will be used.” (CFR 1910.134)
Among other medical waste services Texas, Excel Medical Waste now provides onsite respirator fit testing to help employers comply with federal regulations and ensure employee safety. Employees can be tested on the same mask they use in your facility.
We provide a laminated wallet card that documents the date of testing as well as the make and model of respirator. We have the expertise and resources to get this testing done in a quick and orderly manner so employees are back to work in a timely fashion.
Don’t let noncompliance with this regulation cost your facility money!
