Fit Testing Service for Healthcare Workers
Great Lakes Physician Services offers online medical clearance and on-site fit testing to large health care organizations. Respiratory Protection for healthcare workers has become a foremost concern as a result of the recent outbreak of H1N1. In 2004 OSHA mandated the use of the OSHA CFR 1910.134 respiratory protection standard for all healthcare facilities in the U.S. In 2008 congress essentially voted to allow OSHA to actively pursue healthcare facilities who do not comply with the respiratory standard. JCAHO has made compliance with the OSHA respiratory standard a priority since 2009/2010 during its site visits and accreditation process. If your hospital is not compliant it is highly recommended that you institute a respiratory program and have your employees equipped with and ready to use N95 respirators.
Great Lakes Physician Services will partner with you to provide your employees with medical clearance and fit testing services for the N95 respirator. We have developed a process specific to the healthcare industry that will enable your hospital to quickly become compliant with the OSHA respiratory protection standard. Our process includes medical clearance prior to fit testing as per OSHA regulations. We will then have staff on-site to provide OSHA compliant fit testing in an efficient and minimally disruptive fashion to your personnel.
