OSHA Testing


OSHA Compliance is a number one concern at every worksite, and Pro Safety & Rescue, Inc. is here to partner with your team to maintain OSHA Compliance in regards to Fit Testing, Pulmonary Testing, and Audiometric Testing.

What is Fit Testing?

Fit testing is an important protocol to follow in order to maintain a safe working environment for your teams. There are times in many projects when the use of a respirator may become necessary. There are some requirements you need to know before you give your team members a respirator. Our team can answer all of your questions and perform the following tests:

  • Pulmonary Testing (PFT)
  • Qualitative Fit Testing
  • Quantitative Fit Testing

Tight-fitting respirators must seal to the wearer’s face in order to provide adequate protection. This includes disposable respirators (also called “filtering face pieces”). Therefore, fit testing is required in the US by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) before a user wears a mandatory respirator on the job, and must be assessed at least annually. In addition, fit tests should be performed:

  • Whenever a different size, model, or make of a respirator is used
  • When any facial changes occur that could affect fit, such as significant weight fluctuation or dental work

All of our safety training is designed to equip your team with the knowledge and ability to be proactive in the prevention of accidents and injuries, and the protection of your business assets.

Occupational noise exposure can be a big problem. If your workplace or employees are exposed to high levels of noise, you likely already recognize the need for a hearing conservation program. Pro Safety & Rescue can assist you in creating and managing a hearing conservation program that fits your workplace as well as perform regular audiometric testing.

What is Audiometric Testing?

Audiometric testing is a way to monitor employees’ hearing over time. It involves taking baseline audiograms as well as annual tests to measure if any significant loss of hearing is taking place. It is required for

Audiometric testing is a great way to educate employees on protecting themselves from hearing damage. Annual followup tests help to show whether the hearing conservation program you have in place is actually working to prevent hearing loss.

Baseline Audiograms

A baseline audiogram acts as a reference to which all future tests can be compared. Before taking this test, employees should not be exposed to workplace noise or wear hearing protection for at least 14 hours.

Annual Audiograms

Annual audiograms are performed within a year of the baseline audiogram and every year thereafter. These tests are an important part of making sure that your employees’ hearing is not being damaged over time. The earlier any hearing deterioration is caught, the faster protective measures can be taken to prevent further damage.

Let us help you with all of your audiometric testing needs.
