Respiratory Protection Training and Fit-Testing

To complete Respiratory Protecting Training and Fit-Testing, follow the instructions below:

  1. Register for EHS532 Respiratory Protection Training (Online) at My EHS Training and logging in with your UTORid and password.
  2. Once registered, individuals will receive instructions on how to access the course on Quercus.
  3. View the online training presentation in Quercus and complete the quiz with a minimum grade of 70%. Please bring proof of completion (screenshot or printout).
  4. Complete the Respiratory User Screen Form (Word version and PDF version) then book an appointment for fit-test here. Please bring the complete form to the fit-test appointment.

Please note:

  1. Fit-testing will only take place during the allotted time frames provided by EHS at the EHS office located at 215 Huron Street, 7th Floor – Seminar Room (unless otherwise specified).
  2. Individuals must be clean-shaven where the respirator is in contact with the face in order to be fit-tested. 

IMPORTANT: Until further notice, EHS will only be fit-testing individuals on elastomeric respirators (half and full-face) if the user brings their own respirator for the fit-test. If Departments would like to pre-order a respirator for the fit-test, they can contact EHS to determine which size and model to order. Please note that the recommended respirator is not a guarantee that the individual will successfully pass the fit-test.
