Last Chance: Respirator Use Webcast Available for 1.25 CNE Contact Hours

AAOHN and the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine have teamed to present a Webcast on April 4 from 2 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. ET, entitled "Physical Qualifications for Personnel Respirator Use." The presentation is designed to comprehensively review the new AIHA/ANSI Standard Z-88.6-2006, including a brief discussion of the rationale for its development and heavy emphasis on the limitations of "medical" tests to determine suitability for a respirator and/or a job requiring one. Sections of the standard that give detailed guidance on practices that exceed OSHA's minimal requirements will be highlighted, as will appropriate use of spirometry (PFT) and exercise stress testing (EST) in respirator medical clearance.

Webcast participants can receive 1.25 CNE contact hours or 1.25 AMA PRA category 1 creditsTM. An archive of the program, worth the same number of contact hours or credits will be available to registrants following the live Webcast. Cost is $50 for AAOHN or ACOEM members and $75 for non-members. Registrants may also purchase a CD of the Webcast for $12; non-registrants can purchase the CD for $50 (AAOHN and ACOEM members) or $75 (non-members).

Registration deadline is April 3. For more information and registration, visit http://www.aaohn.org/education/online-learning/Webcasts/ansi.cfm.
