What Are Respirator Physicals?

Many jobs require employees to wear a respirator as a standard safety practice. This can be because employees work with toxins, or because they work with machines that produce a lot of dust. Respirators help keep these employees safe on the job, but not everyone can safely wear a respirator. Respirator physicals determine if your employees can safely wear respirators on the job.

Respirator Fit Tests

Respirator physicals are often coupled with a respirator fit test. Respirator fit tests are required for all tight-fitting respirators, including both supplied-air respirators and air-purifying respirators. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires fit testing before first use, if there are changes to use, and annually. There are two methods of fit testing: qualitative fit testing and quantitative fit testing. Qualitative fit testing is the most common method, but Concentra provides both methods of fit testing. In 2016, we provided 58,000 fit tests.
