Wear a respirator (does not include paper dust mask worn for comfort).
Any employee who works in an area or who may work in an area that requires respiratory protection must complete an initial respirator questionnaire and send it to MSU Occupational Health. The questionnaire must be reviewed by MSU Occupational Health prior to the employee being fitted for or using the respirator. Even if the respirator does NOT have to be fitted (i.e., PAPR), the employee MUST still complete the respirator questionnaire.
After submitting the respirator questionnaire, the employee may signup for a fit test at the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS). Employees who wear a dust mask for comfort (sweeping floors or erasing chalk boards) do not need to comply with the program requirements. For more information, call EHS at 355-0153.
- Completion of initial respirator questionnaire and submission to MSU Occupational Health. Review of the questionnaire will determine additional follow-up.
