Respiratory Protection Program

Baseline and periodic medical approval is required for all employees that wear respirators as a condition of their job. Services offered through St. Luke's Occupational Health's Respiratory Protection Program support an employer's occupational health and safety program in accordance with OSHA’s Respiratory Protection Standard 1910.134.

Program Components

  •  Review of respiratory questionnaire to assess employee's respiratory system and determine respiratory health
  •  When required, a medical examination to assure that the worker is physically able to perform the work while wearing the equipment
  •  When indicated, spirometry evaluation to measure employee's breathing capacity
  •  Respirator fit testing to determine if the respirator affords adequate protection to the user
  •  OSHA-required documentation of medical ability to wear a respirator, proper respirator fit, and appropriate education
  •  Assistance in developing a respiratory protection policy and program
