Whether you are using hazardous chemicals or working with mold-infested artifacts after a disaster, you need to be sure you are protected by the right equipment. The lecture meets the annual training requirement mandated by OSHA, while the fit testing meets the annual testing requirement. Attend the free lecture Wednesday evening by a Respiratory Protection Program Manager and Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) on the care and maintenance of respirators and general information on their proper use. The lecture is open to all; those wishing to schedule fit testing appointment MUST attend the lecture. Fit testing appointments will be scheduled on Thursday in 15 to 20 minute intervals from 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Registrants for fit testing appointments MUST bring a completed and signed OSHA Medical Evaluation form with the signature of their health professional and the dates for which the evaluation is valid. The form and signature sheets are available on the AIC Health and Safety Guides and Publication Webpage at www.conservation-us.org/fittest. Registrants should bring their own respirators or select an appropriate style from AIC’s samples.
