OSHA Respiratory Medical Clearance and Fit Testing

MEMBER BENEFIT: Group Pricing for EM NARI Members

Posted by on 8 September 2016 | 0 Comments

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.  


OSHA Respirator Questionnaire Admin Fee:$ 40
PFT Pulmonary Function Test: $ 55
Fit Test for an N95 Mask:$ 65
Blood Lead Test: $ 55
ZPP Lead Test: $ 50 
TOTAL COST Per Person:$ 265


The attached New Client Evaluation Form should be completed by each company.  Only the top part needs to be filled out. At the bottom they should write NARI member for Respirator exam.  CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE FORM.

The form must be first emailed to rbenoit@mah.harvard.edu and then an appointment for the fit testing can be made by phone at 617-354-0546.  Fees are going up October 1st, so companies should schedule before the end of September.

This downloadable OSHA Questionnaire is to be completed by each employee being tested. They should come with this filled out and be clean shaven. Allow 30 minutes for each test.
