Respirator Lung Function Testing

This testing satisfies OSHA 1910.134 . The testing is in two-parts. The first requires all respirator wearers to fill out a Respirator Medical Questionnaire. Upon review from an independent physician, each employee that needs the spirometry (Pulmonary Function Test/PFT) portion of the exam is tested. The employee is given an exam that measures the capacity of their lungs and their ability to expel that air. Blood pressure is also taken during this exam. All respirator wearers receive an individual sealed letter stating their results and the employer is given a list of employees who have taken the exam and any restrictions on respirator use. This is a Med Compass recommended annual requirement.
