If your employee doesn’t pass, there is no fee. If he or she fails the online version, we’ll request a written questionnaire. Once finished, the completed form is sent into the OHS office via email, fax or US Mail and is reviewed by a health professional. In very rare instances, further evaluation may be required. OHS has partnered with oshamedcert to simplify this medical clearance process for employers – and it works!
Although this yearly fit testing can be time consuming, it is important in the protection of your team keeping them from the adverse health affects of hazardous exposure. OHS offers both qualitative and quantitative fit testing using a state-of-the-art Portacount machine. Also, we can do this testing at our office or on-site at your facility.
While there are many specific requirements when it comes to respiratory protection, OHS and our team of health professionals are here to help employers weed through the requirements, and work with your team to determine the right applications for your workplace environment.
