First Call Environmental is always focused on pushing compliance when it comes to annual testing.
Most of our standards are driven by OSHA along with typical industry best practices.
Every year we are required to make sure that all of our field personnel that have completed the hazwoper training complete a refresher course. Those same employees complete a respiratory healthcare questionnaire every year prior to fit testing. Once the physician approves the questionnaire, the employee then completes their fit test.
This is crucial to make sure that our field personnel are provided with the most updated information on terminology, techniques, and technology in the industry. The annual fit testing helps to make sure that physical changes have not altered the size mask that fits best.
Just like annual training requirements, we require testing for our equipment like pressure testing for our level A suits, packs themselves, and more!
Working with standards and clear expectations are always the best way for a company to move forward with a common direction.
