Dear Provider,

You have been directed to this page in order to schedule Respirator Fit Testing, and to complete Respiratory Medical Clearances for you and your staff who will be wearing N95 Respirators due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Please read the following guidance, and follow the instructions for requesting an appointment very carefully.

There are Three (3) Parts to Prepare for Fit Testing.

At the bottom of this page you will provide us with the information about your facility.

When you schedule your appointment, you will enter the First Name  & Last Names of all staff needing to be fit tested.

Please have your staff watch this  video

When you complete the appointment form below, you will receive a "checklist" of items that must be completed before we can conduct any fit tests.

These are the three biggest challenges to fit testing that may lead to a failed test.

 

    • Beards that interfere with the seal of the Respirator.
      We will not fit test persons with beards, or facial hair that interferes with the seal of the Respirator. No exceptions for any reason.
      This is an OSHA Federal Regulation and Washington State L&I Regulation.
    • Do you have staff where English is a second language with very little English comprehension?
      You must provide English to Native language translation.
    • Failure to complete the 3M Medical Evaluations.

Note: If anyone on your staff fails to complete the 3M Medical Evaluations on fit testing date, they will not be fit tested.
