Respiratory Protection Program

For employers who require employees to wear a respirator, a baseline and periodic medical approval is required prior to fit testing or wearing a respirator. 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
  •  Provide references to assist in developing a respiratory protection policy and program
