To start the process for getting fit tested, fill out two forms: the Respiratory Medical Questionnaire
, and the Respiratory Protection Initial Clearance form
. Once completed, send these to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have an Initial Medical Surveillance appointment scheduled, and know you need to be fit tested, bring the forms to the appointment and they will be reviewed by the OH nurse. If there is any medical issue, there may be a delay in scheduling your fit test appointment.
Once you are cleared, the Research Safety Industrial Hygienists (RSIH) are notified and sent the Initial respiratory clearance form. The additional steps to take are outlined on the respiratory protection page,
and need to be completed prior to RSIH scheduling your fit test appointment.
Once training is completed, the RSIH will contact you to schedule a fit test appointment in Building 401.
