Respirator Fit Testing Clinics in WNY/Finger Lakes 2019

April 2 - May 16, 2019

The New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH) and HealthWorks Occupational Health Services are providing a series of respirator fit testing clinics in our region. During the clinics NYCAMH will provide medical evaluations, respirator fit tests, and WPS compliant trainings on how to properly inspect, put on, take off, fit, seal check, use, clean, maintain, and store respirators. A respirator fit test ensures that a particular make, model, and size of respirator fits the wearer's face and will meet the wearer's needs. A fit test is specific to the make, model, and size of respirator.

If a worker wears more than one style of respirator, including filtering face-pieces, they must be fit-tested for each one. Please keep in mind that a clean-shaven face is necessary for masks to be effective and for fit-testing to be possible.

Clinic appointments are 1 hour long, and groups of 4 workers can be seen at a time. Medical evaluations, fit tests, and trainings are available in both English and Spanish. Fees range from $25-$65 per person/per mask: please ask for details when scheduling an appointment.

To schedule an appointment please call the NYCAMH office during the date ranges listed below for each event and ask to speak with the farm respirator clinic scheduler. Appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. The office can be reached at 607-547-7014 or toll-free at 800-343-7527, Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM-4:30 PM. When calling to schedule an appointment please have the following information available:
Total number of people attending from your farm
• Name of each person being scheduled
• Language spoken by each attendee
• Make and model of each respirator to be tested

If you are unable to attend the clinic in your area you may schedule an appointment at another location.
