|Mask Fit Testing||
UMMC EHS will conduct respirator medical clearance and fit testing from February 6, 2017 - March 21, 2017.
They have appointments 1:00pm, 1:40pm, 2:00pm, 2:40pm, 3:00pm and 3:20pm from Mon through Friday in each testing round. Students will be expected to call and schedule the appointment at 410-328-6151.
Male students should be clean shaven in order to be fit tested, if not clean shaven, they will be instructed on the use of the powered air purifying respirator (PAPR). Female students with long hair should have a hair band/rubber band to hold hair (out of the way) to facilitate fit testing.
Students must complete the OSHA Respiratory Questionnaire and bring it to the appointment. Any student who arrives without the completed questionnaire may be rescheduled, as this may adversely impact the appointment schedule. Any student who arrives late for an appointment may be rescheduled. Additionally, students need to be able to provide information about flu vaccination. UMMC has a mandatory flu vaccination policy to which students are expected to adhere. We will be asking questions about flu vaccination when the student calls for the fit test appointment. If a student has not been vaccinated, UMMC can provide flu vaccination. This information has to be reported to CMS.Forms and Instructions
