Respirator Fit Testing – Where do you go to get a fit-test?

If you use a pesticide that requires the use of a respirator, the Worker Protection Standard requires that before you use the respirator you must first receive:  A medical evaluation by a physician or other licensed health care professional to determine if you are physically fit to wear a respirator Fit-testing with a taste/smell/irritating indicator

If you use a pesticide that requires the use of a respirator, the Worker Protection Standard requires that before you use the respirator you must first receive: 

  • A medical evaluation by a physician or other licensed health care professional to determine if you are physically fit to wear a respirator
  • Fit-testing with a taste/smell/irritating indicator or with quantitative measurements to determine if the respirator forms a complete seal with your face
  • Training about the use, care, and maintenance of the respirator.

Where do applicators go to get the fit-testing done? Iowa’s Center for Agricultural Safety and Health (I-CASH) keeps an updated list of locations around the state that provide medical evaluations and respirator fit-testing, which can be found here.

To check if a pesticide requires the use of a respirator, look under the precautionary statement section of the label under the personal protective equipment requirements. Three handy resources for looking up pesticide labels are www.cdms.net, https://www.greenbook.net/, and https://agrian.com/labelcenter/results.cfm.
