A Respiratory Exam is required by OSHA for an employee who's job duties require him or her to wear a respiratory device from time to time to protect the lungs from exposure to chemicals or particulate matter. In order to safely use a respiratory device, employees need to complete an OSHA respirator questionnaire which a medical provider must review. Respiratory questionnaires are reviewed by an occupational provider and the provider may request pulmonary function testing to measure lung capacity and airflow and/or a basic physical examination as well. If the exam is required due to medical concerns, the employee will be evaluated for cardiac or pulmonary disease that might place them at risk if breathing was restricted while using that device.

Following the exam, recommendations can be made for your employees as to the type of respiratory device that can be used, as well as the duration and physical work performed while wearing that device.

The clearance letter, signed by the physician, is then made available to the employer in compliance with the OSHA Respiratory Protection Standard.
