Respirator Use Guidelines and Fit Testing

Employees who wear a respirator as part of their job duties are required to follow Environmental Health and Safety’s (EHS) respiratory protection program guidelines. Developed in compliance with the State of Ohio Public Employment Risk Reduction Program (PERRP) and OSHA rules, the guidelines support a safe working environment while ensuring employees comply with regulations. Annual online training and fit testing for respirator users is provided through EHS. If you are unsure whether a respirator is required, contact EHS for a hazard assessment of your work area.

Please Note: Wexner Medical Center employees should schedule fit testing via MyTools.
