N95 Respirator Education

The FHS Safety Office offers education and fit testing for N95 respirators of various models. The employee participates in a presentation covering the basic information on the selection, care and use of their respirator. The employee then participates in a fit test to determine the appropriate size and shape of respirator for them.

Respirator training is required on an annual basis under RMM#311. Fit testing is required every two years or immediately if there has been a change to the shape of the wearer's face. (EG. shift in weight of 10%, oral surgery, cosmetic surgery, etc.)

Respirator training occurs on an as needed basis. Contact the FHS Safety Office for information.
