The New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH) in cooperation with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County is pleased to provide respirator fit testing clinics in your region in 2019.
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.
Clinic appointments are one 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.
If you are unable to attend the clinic in your area region you may schedule an appointment at another clinic location.
To schedule an appointment please call the NYCAMH office, and ask to speak with farm respirator clinic scheduler.
We can be reached at 607-547-7014 or toll-free 800-343-7527
When calling to schedule an appointment please have the following information available:
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 facepieces, they must be fit tested for each one. Please keep in mind while determining who will come to the clinic that a clean-shaven face is a necessity for masks to be effective and for fit testing to be possible.
It is important to us that your workers be protected from any respiratory hazards. It is important to us that you be protected from potential OSHA or DEC fines. If you have any questions, please call us.
