Before wearing a respirator, OSHA requires employee’s to have had a medical evaluation. Dental Safety Solutions provides same day Online Medical Evaluations. OSHA also requires respirator fit testing, training and a qualified administrator of your respiratory program.
Additionally, employers whose employee’s work with hazardous substances are required to perform a Hazard Assessment to determine their employee’s level of exposure to the air contaminant. Engineering and administrative controls are to be implemented if the levels from the Hazard Assessment exceed OSHA’s Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL). If controls are still not enough to reduce the exposure limit below the PEL, then a respirator program must be implemented. The employer’s Hazard Assessment will determine the type of respiratory protection needed and the life of the cartridge/filter.
Dental Safety Solutions provides on site training and day long seminars that includes medical evaluations, respirator fit testing and training and CE credit for respiratory protection program administrators.
