Does Your N95 Respirator Protect You from COVID-19?

While conducting respirator fit testing programs during the pandemic, Mobile Health fit testers hear a single question more often than any other: Does my N95 respirator protect me from COVID-19? 

According to OSHA’s recent COVID-19 Respiratory Protection FAQ, the answer is YES, providing the N95 respirator is used correctly. OSHA ‘correct use’ requires N95s be part of an employer’s OSHA-compliant Respiratory Protection Program, which must be in place when respirators are required, by OSHA or the employer, to protect the employee.

When employers meet these requirements, worker’s N95 respirators and other NIOSH-approved respirators are very effective at protecting them from the virus causing COVID-19. 

Mobile Health is your answer to COVID-19 protection and OSHA Respiratory Protection Program compliance. We combine every fit testing solution with our online medical evaluations, required by OSHA before any employee is ready for fit testing. 

Choose Mobile Health for OSHA Compliance 
Prior to fit testing, a Mobile Health PLHCP (physician or other licensed health care professional) reviews the employee’s online medical evaluation to ensure they are medically able to wear an N95 respirator. Next, our expert fit testers perform the 15-minute test on medically cleared workers.
