AUGUSTA — Join us at the Augusta Civic Center on Monday, January 15 & 16 to get your respirator fit test done. Under the revised Worker Protection Standards, anyone applying pesticides that require the use of a respirator, must complete (and maintain a record of) a respirator fit test. Respirator fit tests must be completed with the same make, model, size, and style of respirator that will be used in the field. Prior to respirator fit testing, each applicator must pass (and maintain a record of) a medical evaluation demonstrating they are physically fit enough to wear a respirator.
Pre-registration is required. Registration costs $15. Call or email Lynne Hazelton at 207.781.6099 or firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for a time slot and receive a link to register.
