Limited Capacity seats available

Whether you are using hazardous chemicals in your laboratory or working with mold-infested artifacts after a flood, you need to be protected with a properly fitting respirator. This workshop will provide the participant with access to an online lecture on respirator selection, care, and use, as well as a 15-minute, individual appointment for a personal respirator fit test, ensuring an acceptable, face-to-facepiece seal/fit of their respirator. The individual appointment provides an opportunity for participants to ask any specific questions, and to “shop” for a new half-mask, air-purifying respirator from the Committee’s selection of samples. You should bring your personal respirator if you have one.

This AIC Respirator Fit Test Program is targeted towards conservators who may not have access to a Safety Professional to conduct the test or do not have respirator fit testing available through their employer, but is open to all interested parties. This workshop is in accordance with the U.S. OSHA Standard (29CFR1910.134 - Respiratory Protection). The online lecture and fit test appointments will be conducted by a Certified Industrial Hygienist.

Individuals wishing to be fit for a respirator MUST:
  1. Register for the Respirator Fit Test “workshop” at the AIC Annual Meeting.
  2. Watch the REQUIRED online lecture and take the corresponding quiz.
  3. Schedule a fit test appointment. The appointments will be scheduled to take place in 15-minute intervals from 9:00am - 5:00pm on Wednesday, May 30, 2018.
  4. Complete a REQUIRED medical evaluation within twelve months PRIOR to your fit test. The medical evaluation must be performed by a healthcare professional. If you prefer not to use your own healthcare provider, FAIC can suggest a clinic that will review your evaluation questionnaire (additional $25 cost).
  5. Bring your Respirator Medical Clearance Approval Form signed by a healthcare professional to your scheduled appointment and get fit tested.
Once you register for the Respirator Fit Test, you will receive an email with the forms and instructions for steps to completed before the Annual Meeting.

Appointments are limited. The last day to register for a Respirator Fit Test is May 16.
Cost: $39 (non-CIPP members) /$0 (CIPP members)
With the generous support of the Conservators in Private Practice (CIPP) Specialty Group, fit tests are being offered for free to CIPP members. If you are a CIPP Member, please contact your specialty group chair for the discount code.
