In work environments with insufficient oxygen or where toxic substances, like dust, fog, smoke, fumes, gases, vapors, or sprays, are present, employees are required to wear respirators. To ensure compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) respirator standard, employers must establish and maintain an effective respiratory protection program in order to safeguard against workplace hazards. At Forensic Analytical Consulting Services (FACS), we provide quantitative/qualitative respirator fit testing programs to fulfill the requirements of your respirator program.
