SRS conducts the hands-on fit testing and training that OSHA requires for the safe and effective use of common respirators e.g., N-95, half-face, full-face, Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) and Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA).
Purpose: Promotion of safe and effective respirator use in order to minimize inhalation exposure to airborne contaminants or pathogens.
Content: Training focuses on how to properly fit, use and maintain respirators. This includes inspection, cleaning, cartridge replacement, storage and waste disposal of common respiratory protection equipment.
Re-credentialing: You can return your re-credentialing packet with the date that you intend to attend training and fit test. After the training and fit test you can then submit paperwork to Credentials Office.
More Information: If you have questions related to respirator training, or to set up or find a group training date/time that works for you, please contact Safety & Risk Services at 277-2753. All N-95 Training Records are available on Learning Central. Training documentation will be available on Learning Central within 5 working days following the training and fit test.
