Respirator Fit Testing Services
OSHA requires fit testing and training for any employee required to wear a tight fitting respirator on the job. TGE’s experienced professionals provide on-site training and certifications for qualitative and quantitative respirator fit testing.
Our testing and training system is designed to simplify record keeping, thereby cutting administrative costs. Training is not simply an informative video; we provide personalized training to each of our students.
Respirator Fit Test Training for Healthcare Facilities
In 2008, the U.S. Appropriations Bill passed a respiratory fit testing mandate for hospitals. Healthcare facilities are now required to comply with OSHA's Annual System-Wide "Qualitative" & "Quantitative" Employee Fit Testing & Data Maintenance program.
Multiple hospital groups routinely turn to TGE to conduct in-house quantitative and qualitative respiratory fit testing for healthcare staff. TGE maintains an available inventory of owned equipment and supplies to conduct quantitative fit testing to comply with this federal mandate. Specifically, TGE utilizes multiple ©PORTACOUNT PRO fit testers and Fit Test Software to accurately complete testing.
What sets TGE apart is our efficient respirator fit testing system. In approximately four weeks, TGE completed over one thousand (1,000) N95 respirator fit tests for a major hospital group associated with the Houston Medical Center (and its regional market). With TGE's assistance, this client was able to comply with annual fit testing requirements, avoid OSHA violations and ensure employee personal protection.
