Respiratory PPE fit testing helps assure the best protection against dangerous airborne particles. Agricultural workers face a myriad of challenges in obtaining a proper fit test and who can provide this service. Additionally, there are gray areas of misunderstanding about the fit testing mandates in certain agricultural populations. Respirator Fit Testing in Agricultural Communities will address some of these issues in an OSHA sponsored webinar on Wednesday, June 24 at 12:00 CDT

Intended audience
Agricultural workers, including women in agriculture, managers and owners of agricultural businesses, educational and healthcare organizations serving an agricultural population

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to: 

  • Understand the difference between a respirator fit test and a fit check (seal check) procedure.
  • Determine who should be fit tested for respiratory personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Identify who can perform a fit test and what tools are necessary for a fit test procedure
  • Locate current reliable resources that provide information on respiratory fit testing
