NIOSH Respirator Mask Fit Test and Respiratory Protection Program Training
In recent days, the Biden Administration directed OSHA to implement a new COVID-19 National Emphasis Program and Updated Interim Enforcement Response Plan. These programs went into effect this month. In turn, OSHA is directing increased scrutiny at high-risk locations such as medical facilities, dental facilities, and meatpacking plants with a specific emphasis on the Respiratory Protection Program (RPP). As such, OSHA will be conducting in-person/remote inspections in the very near future.
What do you need to remain in OSHA compliance?
1) Have an OSHA written Respiratory Protection Program
2) Appoint someone to serve as Administrator of that program
3) Documented training for all employees in the program
4) Medical evaluations for all personnel who will be wearing a respirator
5) Specialized fit testing for all personnel required to wear a respirator
What should you do next?
STEP 1: Contact HCR to talk about your individual needs and schedule immediate full-service RPP implementation.
STEP 2: Have all personnel who will be wearing a respirator complete a medical evaluation at this link which is the course recommended by OSHA: 3M Respiratory Protection Program Medical Evaluation ($29.00 per employee)
STEP 3: Leave the rest to HCR. We’ll complete all the necessary training, fit testing, and documentation. The complete service is $75 per employee* for non-compliance clients and $35 per employee for existing compliance clients. We can also be customize per clinic as appropriate.
