We have worked with Mt. Auburn Hospital Occupational Services to offer respiratory clearance, respirator fit testing, and blood lead level screening to EM NARI Members at a discount during the month of September.
As you know, according to the Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards RRP Lead Law, remodeling work in pre-1978 homes requires that employers protect their employees and follow the OSHA Respiratory and Medical Monitoring requirements. The Mass law CMR 454.200 includes requirements for creating medical monitoring and respiratory written plans, pulmonary function testing and pre-job baseline blood testing.
In addition to protecting your employees from lead, respirators are essential to protect your workers when exposed to silica, spray foam, asbestos as well as dust from composite, fiber cement, pressure treated and wood.
Mount Auburn is conveniently located in Cambridge and will provide the medical services to EMNARI members at a preferred rate. They also can be scheduled to come to your location for large groups. During the month of September members will waive $150 set up fee.
