NIOSH, AIHA to Host Respirator Fit Testing TeleWeb

Two NIOSH Scientists, Ziqing Zhuang, Ph.D., and William Newcomb, will participate in American Industrial Hygiene Association's Distance Learning Program by presenting "The Value of Anthropometrics" and "How to Improve and Apply Respirator Fit Testing" in a TeleWeb on Thursday, March 20, 2008, from 2 p.m.-4:30 p.m. ET.

The course will provide an overview of fit testing, NIOSH respirator certification, discussion of a new respirator fit test panel, and the results of testing using the new panel, NIOSH says. Students will be provided with tools to better able them to understand the value of fit testing, categorize facial characteristics which can affect respirator use, and identify applicable fit testing methodologies that can be applied within their own organization.
