Limited Capacity seats available


Whether using hazardous chemicals in a lab or working with mold-infested artifacts after a flood, the right equipment is needed to ensure protection. This workshop lecture will provide information to help establish and maintain a Respiratory Protection Program for a workplace, as well as understand proper selection, care and use of a respirator. The fit testing session is critical to determining which mask provides an acceptable face-to-seal fit and will include a wide variety of half-mask air-purifying models and sizes to try. Participants wishing to schedule a fit testing appointment must attend the lecture AND complete a medical evaluation within the twelve months prior to fit testing. Fit Testing appointments will be conducted in 20 minute intervals by a Canadian-based Registered Occupational Hygienist and a U.S.-based Certified Industrial Hygienist. Registrants will be contacted by the Health & Safety Committee before the meeting to facilitate scheduling appointments. Medical evaluations and approval forms (Canadian and U.S.) are available on the AIC Health & Safety Committee’s webpage (http://www.conservation-us.org/fittest).
