Scheduling a Fit Test
Individual Respirator fit tests can be scheduled by clicking the button to the right.
Departmental fit tests can be scheduled by having your department contact send an email to Environmental Health & Safety Fit Test Program (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by calling 409-772-8459.
Before scheduling a fit test, verify with Employee Health that you or your employees have a previous medical clearance for a respirator: https://hr.utmb.edu/ehc/
- Medical questionnaire forms for N-95 and PAPR can be downloaded here (if you are a healthcare worker, this is the form you need).
- Respiratory questionnaire form for other types of respirators can be downloaded here.
Individual and departmental fit tests are scheduled Monday through Friday 8 AM-5 PM. Individual fit tests are conducted in the Materials Management Warehouse (1302 Mechanic Street, Room 2.106; enter through entrance at corner of 13th and Mechanic Street). Departmental fit tests can be performed in your department's location upon request (10 employee minimum).
Although we will try to accommodate urgent fit test requests, we request at least three day's notice for scheduling fit tests. Same-day fit test requests are not guaranteed. Departmental fit tests can be scheduled outside of normal business hours by emailing or calling using the above contact information.
Employees must be clean shaven to be fit tested and to wear a tight-fitting respirator! Anyone with visible stubble or a beard/mustache will not be fit tested.
