LA VERNIA, Texas – June 11, 2016 – PRLog — OCTOBER, 15TH, 2015, (San Antonio, Texas) – Your Safety Department now helps employers meet the requirements of their respiratory protection programs by providing administration of employee medical questionnaire and examinations, respirator training, and respirator fit testing using QNFT protocol and the ambient aerosol condensation nuclei counter (CNC) method.
1) Your Safety Department provides the administration of the employee medical evaluation questionnaire and examinations (MEQ) in accordance with OSHA Requirements. We work with Medical Directors who are board certified in Emergency Medicine and are practicing physicians. They review the medical information and provide clearance for employees to perform work using respirators.
2) Your Safety Department then conducts respirator training ensuring your employees understand why respirators are necessary, what the limitations and capabilities of the respirator are, how to inspect, don, doff, use and check the respirator, how to maintain and store the respirator and how to recognize medical signs and symptoms that may limit or prevent effective use of respirators.
3) Your Safety Department finalizes the evaluation process by ensuring that the respirator which the employee uses fits the employee appropriately and passes an OSHA accepted Fit Test Protocol.
4) Employees receive a laminated fit cards valid for one year identifying the type of respirator, style, model, size, fit factor and validation period at the time of service.
From large entities and organizations such as hospitals, clinics, manufacturers, construction, and refiners; to small business entities that are required to meet OSHA requirements, Your Safety Department provides fast, efficient and quality service.
Chris Thuneman, President of Your Safety Department states, “We are excited to be able to support our customers and their employees with a comprehensive respiratory protection program which will ensure that respirator users will be able to protect themselves from hazardous atmospheres whenever engineering controls are being instituted or are not feasible. By administering the MEQ, providing appropriate training, and using a TSI PortaCount 8038 Pro+, we are able to serve all respirator wearers utilizing; N-Series, R-Series, P-Series (95, 99, and 100) Filtering Facepieces, Half Masks and Full Facepiece respirators.”
